The Noreen Stonor Drexel Education Awards Noreen Stonor Drexel had an unmatched ability to bring members of the Newport community together around important issues. She was definitely a "doer" and she encouraged other people to "do". She hosted an annual get together at her home that provided key players in Newport and the state to leave their political hats at the door and talk about what they could do together. One of those instances was the fund raising effort for the renovation and restoration of the Thompson Middle School. Through her efforts, a large private funder launched the furniture and technology fund raiser for the middle school. She was definitely a strategic team-builder and used her social networks to help out so many different causes whether it was education or healthcare. She was a woman of integrity and loved the Newport community. She was often seen having her breakfast or lunch at the Newport Creamery on Bellevue Avenue where she was a regular. In 2013, the Newport Public Education Foundation, in recognition of Noreen Stonor Drexel's twenty-two years of service to the board of trustees of the Newport Public Education Foundation as a "Special Advisor", named their annual awards in her honor.The Noreen Stonor Drexel Education Awards are selected annually and represent individuals and organizations that significantly contribute to the students of the Newport Public Schools. Currently, there are three awards: Friend of Education, Partner in Education and Unsung Hero.
