WVDE Seeking Applications For Its First Ever Community Leadership Service Award

March 02, 2009

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Department of Education is seeking applications for the Community Leader Service Award.

Strong partnerships between homes, schools and communities are needed to ensure a quality education for all children. The resulting home-school-community collaborations can have positive effects on classroom instruction and student achievement. It is important to recognize those in the local communities who work diligently in these efforts for the benefit of all children.

The West Virginia Department of Education will honor a recipient in 2009 with the first Community Leader Service Award. This award is designed to recognize an individual, organization or business in West Virginia for exemplary work in parent, family and community partnerships with schools to increase student achievement.

Nominations will be accepted until April 1, 2009. For more information about the Community Leadership Service Award, contact Betsy Peterson at 304-558- 2696 or Dr. Pamela Cain at 304-558-2691.
