Assemblyman Dinowitz Calls on Department of Education to Rename PS 7 After Long-Time Principal Milton Fein
Bronx - In a letter addressed to NYC schools’ Chancellor Dennis Walcott, Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz called on the Department of Education to rename PS 7 after its long-time Principal, Milton Fein. Below is the text of the letter sent to Chancellor Walcott:
Dear Chancellor Walcott:
I am writing to urge that PS 7 in the Bronx, located at 3201 Kingsbridge Avenue just up the block from my office, be renamed the Milton Fein School in honor of its longtime, great Principal.
Milton Fein served as the Principal of PS 7 for 27 years. In fact, when he retired he was the longest serving Principal in the entire city. What makes his relationship with PS 7 even more special is the fact that he himself attended PS 7 as a student. And so did his father. That’s an amazing legacy.
I can tell you first-hand that Milton Fein was an important leader in the Kingsbridge community in which PS 7 is located. His influence was felt well beyond the walls of his beloved school. I think it is fair to say that Milton Fein had a positive impact on the lives of thousands of children, no, tens of thousands of children over his decades of leadership at PS 7.
There was never a more fitting individual to be honored by a school renaming than Milton Fein. This should happen and happen as soon as possible. I respectfully ask for your support in helping to honor this special individual who devoted his life to educating and helping our children. Thank you.
