CBA has awarded Robert Bewley as Lasallian Educator of the Year for the 2017-18 school year.
Bewley was nominated by his colleagues and was presented with the award at Scholastic Honors Night on April 12.
Bewley joined the CBA family in September of 1999 as a member of the Physical Education Department. Outside of the classroom, he has been very involved in the CBA community through his coaching for the boys and girls swimming and diving and track teams.

In 2006-07, he received the Believe to Achieve Coaches award, Syracuse Sports Corporation and Greater Chamber of Commerce Award.

Bewley received his Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Science degree in Physical Education from SUNY at Cortland.
“I’m truly honored to be the recipient of this award,” Bewley said. “It’s humbling that my colleagues would bestow this honor to me.”
