The Alternative Center for Excellence in Danbury is honoring its late founder with Joe Pepin Day. The event on May 14th is open to the public. ACE will celebrate his legacy from 1pm to 4pm. The 85-year-old Pepin died in January. The City Council is considering renaming the school building, and the street or a portion of the street where it's located, after him. He taught at Danbury High School before becoming ACE’s founding principal and teaching there beginning in 1977. He retired in 1997 but continued to participate in events there.
