Newark Education Foundation celebrates excellence
Each year, a "prize patrol" gathers at the Newark Unified School District offices with balloon bouquets to honor school personnel who represent the finest qualities of those working with and supporting education in Newark. The bright arrangements are an invitation to an awards ceremony which, this year, will be held on Thursday, May 17 at the Newark Pavilion.
Awards are given "to those who have made significant, ongoing contributions to the students of Newark Unified School District." Recipients were nominated for "making a positive impact" and "demonstrating a commitment to excellence."
