In a short, heartfelt speech, Superintendent Abbato thanked the members of the board as well as the numerous crowd of UC Board of Education employees who attended the especial meeting to show their support. She reminded everyone about her roots as a Cuban exile, thanking her parents for the work ethic they instilled in her with their example. She also thanked her family and her husband Chris Abbato for their support through the years of her illustrious career. Her words were concise and profound. She was visibly moved as she conveyed her feelings to the audience, whose heart she touched as many could identify with her experience.

The newly appointed UC Superintendent of Schools also thanked NJ State Senator and Union City Mayor Brian P. Stack for his support to education and the improvements he has brought to Union City since becoming mayor. Brian Stack has invested much of his time improving education in Union City as well as supporting its hard working teachers and administrators, building new schools, always fighting in the senate floor to provide the Union City School District and its employees with the necessary tools to perform at their highest level, always keeping in mind that the real beneficiaries are the students. As a result Union City is recognized today as a national leader in public education. Here she proudly poses with her family minutes after her appointment as superintendent.

En un primer plano la Sra. Abbato posa con sus hijos en este día tan espacial, tan especial, tanto para ella como para todos los hispanos y u día de triunfo para las mujeres capaces y de verdaderos valores humanos e intelectuales. Los cubano-américanos debemos sentirnos muy orgullosos de esta mujer ejemplar que ha logrado sus sueños a base de duro trabajo y dedicación a través de una de las vocaciones más hermosas y productivas: la enseñanza. En la segunda foto posa con su esposo Chris Abbato, Maestro del Año en Union City. Uno de los seres humanos más auténticos, honestos y serviciales que he conocido en mi vida. Conozco a este maestro hace muchos años desde cuando los dos fuimos-o por lo menos yo-“exiliados” a Elizabeth, NJ en tiempos cuando otro gran cubano-américano, Rafael Fajardo;El León de Elizabeth luchaba por lograr grandes y positivos cambios en la educación de los estudiantes de esa ciudad . Chris Abbato es hombre ejemplar, acarrrea en su carácter el don de servir, de asistir a los emigrantes que diariamente y tradicionalmente han llegado y llegan a nuestra ciudad. Siempre cordial, siempre luchando por educar de la mejor manera a los estudiantes que acaban de arribar de sus países. Siempre leal a sus amigos y a sus principios y con una luz muy clara sobre las sombras que también gravitan alrededor de nuestra profesión, es querido y admirado por todos los que entendemos la verdadera misión del educador: el estudiante es lo primero. La media naranja de la Superintendente de Escuelas de Union City, Silvia Abbato, es el complimento perfecto para la frase popular: detrás de una gran mujer hay un gran hombre o viceversa.
