Alice Bessonett

As a lifelong resident of North Haven, Alice Bessonett has been involved in a number of organizations and volunteered her time to many different efforts to benefit the town she loves. Her commitment to helping kids began when she herself was a kid — when she was 12, she would make team phone calls for her father, a flag football coach, and later joined her dad on the field as an assistant and also served as a Girl Scout leader. Now a special education teacher at North Haven High School, she is bringing her life’s experience to the calling — she assists a student taking stats for the North Haven High School football team at every home game.
