Better Together Partnership Awards Reception

Save the Date: 2016 Awards Reception

This year's awards reception will be held on Friday, September 23, 2016.

The College of Education has a long history of honoring members of the region’s educational, nonprofit, governmental, and business community for their efforts and contributions on behalf of our area’s children and families.  Year after year, we are pleased to share the extraordinary stories about individuals who dedicate their efforts to improving the state of local schools and districts.

We are privileged to honor local educators, school administrators, businesses, nonprofit organizations, community/government agencies, and individuals who have made significant contributions to local public education with the Better Together – A Partnership of Education, Business & Community Awards.  The theme “Better Together” communicates our belief that it takes a total community effort to meet the exceptional challenges facing public education today.
Recipients selected for their work in the community will be honored at the College of Education’s annual recognition reception.
