Allan Appel File PhotoIt’s official: Richard Therrien, the district’s top science supervisor, is an “outstanding” guy.

The Connecticut Science Supervisors Association awarded Therrien the 2011 Fred Scimone Award for Connecticut Outstanding Science Supervisor.

Therrien got the award on April 27, and was honored Monday night by the New Haven Board of Education.

Therrien is in charge of New Haven Public Schools science programs from kindergarten to 12th grade, a job he’s held for five years. That includes overseeing the annual districtwide science fair, which is going on this week, Tuesday to Thursday, at Yale University Commons.

In a press statement, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Reginald Mayo thanked Therrien for helping to boost science scores and “put[ting] science front and center in our schools.”
