On Thursday, June 17th, Trumbull Police School Resource Officer Weston Bartosik was honored by receiving "The Lenny" award for his hard work and dedication regarding Madison Middle School. "The Lenny" award was created to honor former Madison Middle School Principal Leonard Miller. Principal Miller was described as being tough yet fair, well respected, and that he loved Madison Middle School.
Recipients of Madison Middle School's "The Lenny" award are chosen from the school faculty or community members that demonstrate a commitment to support Madison Middle School in regards to:
- Interaction, involvement and caring with all students.
- Representing and advocating a spirit of volunteerism, involvement and cooperation with all faculty members.
- Developing a camaraderie and support among all members of the Madison Middle School community.
Honorees are chosen every year by previous recipients with the first being selected in 2005, and the 2020 recipient being Special Education Teacher Amy Oman. This year's "The Lenny" award was presented as part of the end of year staff appreciation luncheon. There is also a plaque that is hung in the Madison Middle School faculty room that list the names of all recipients.

Each of these officers are dedicated to work at their designated schools throughout the school year to aid in the safety of the school, teach various safety issues, and get to know the students and faculty.
