The Public Education Foundation celebrates the excellence, commitment and achievement of students, teachers and principals in our public schools. Each year we gather to celebrate the enduring values of our public education system. One of these values is excellence, which are highlighted in the performances, in the speeches, in the personal stories. Even more importantly, the celebration showcases the fundamental public school values of character and resilience. Many of the winners have displayed remarkable strength of character in reaching the achievements they have to do.
The event is also an opportunity to show the Foundation’s gratitude to the many wonderful supporters of public education – the individuals, foundations and companies who give generously to make these scholarships possible.
