In early August, the trustees of the board for the Foundation for Excellence in Public Education performed their most joyous task of the year–surprising the 2015 award winners and grant recipients at each of their respective schools on the first day of pre-planning. See more photos on the FFE’s Facebook page.
Since 1983 the FFE has been encouraging, recognizing, and rewarding excellence in the Clarke County School District. In 2015 just shy of $40,000 will be given to deserving teachers, administrators, and students in our Athens public schools.
We are grateful to the diverse panel of 87 judges from across our community who read and evaluated our award and grant applications. This task would be impossible without their time and expertise.
Please mark your calendars for Monday, October 12th, when we will honor our award winners at our annual FFE banquet at the Classic Center.
