MONTEREY COUNTY, CA – Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County (BGCMC) has been selected as the 2016 recipient of the Monterey County School Boards Association’s “Excellence in Education Award.” The criteria for selection for the “Excellence in Education Award” are:
Opportunity available and accessible to students countywide
Transformative and significant impact on students’ quality of life
Addresses an unmet, countywide student need
Demonstrates a commitment to exceeding expectation in pursuit of addressing the challenge
“We are so honored to be recognized by the Monterey County School Boards Association,” says Donna Ferraro, President & CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County, “We ourselves are not educators, but with the guidance, training, and support of MCOE, we provide effective and measurable programs that address critical after-school and summertime needs – like safety, nutrition, physical activity, mentoring, social and emotional development, homework help, summer learning loss prevention, and targeted academic interventions and solutions.”
The award was presented at the Annual Monterey County School Boards Association dinner on Thursday, April 14th at California State University Monterey Bay in the University Center. School board members and superintendent from all districts attended this prestigious event.
