Know someone who deserves to be in the Hall of Fame? The Broward County Public Schools Hall of Fame, that is.
The Broward Education Foundation is honoring distinguished Broward County school alumni who have made significant contributions, and nominations are being accepted until July 17.
Created in 2013, the Broward Education Foundation Hall of Fame recognizes exemplary graduates of Broward County Public Schools who have made positive contributions and achieved success in their careers.
Nominations can be in one of three award categories, including lifetime achievement for an employee who has made an indelible mark in the community, an outstanding achievement for alumni who have made significant achievements in any field, and education achievement for alumni who have dedicated their careers to public education.
In the past, the foundation has honored city attorneys, school counselors and school principals, including Marjory Stoneman Douglas Principal Michelle Kefford.
Immediately in the wake of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School school shooting, the Broward Education Foundation, set up the official Stoneman Douglas Victims’ Fund where more than $10.5 million was donated and distributed.
