Mallory: Send Me The Best Educators
Mayor Mark Mallory announces that he's starting something new to honor people who contribute the most to Cincinnati Public Schools.
There'll be one winner a month of the Mayor's Recognition of Educational Excellence Award for six months and each will be honored at a City Council meeting as well as featured on the mayor's Web site. Anyone working in a field that directly affects the life of CPS students is eligible, including teachers, administrators, volunteers, PTA members, etc.
The award was created by the mayor's Young Professionals Kitchen Cabinet, a group he established to advise him.
“Teachers are creating the next generation of leaders for our city,” the mayor said in a statement from his office. “Everyone has at least one teacher who changed their life. The award will recognize those teachers who go above and beyond.”
Applications, available at http://www.mayormallory.com/, are due May 30 to the cabinet and can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
