Champions of Education Awards Winners
Because It Takes A Village Award
Valencia Newcomer School
Alhambra Elementary School District
Elizabeth Cranford Wins The Hero Maker Award
“I know that I’m not the only teacher who is doing everything that I can with the time that I have here. I know that there are so many teachers who are working hard and giving it everything that they have – sacrificing selfcare, sometimes sacrificing family time? And so I don’t want to think that I am doing something different than the teacher in the next room, in the next school, in the next city, in the next state, in the next country!”
Dr. Joe Roselle Wins The Founder’s Heart Award
This very special award honors a leader with a courageous heart who sees the genius, passion, and love in other people, gathers those people together, and works to unleash their collective power for positive change in the world around them. Dr. Roselle is a visionary leader who honors the leadership of others around him, finds a way to move forward in the most challenging of circumstances, and celebrates the successes of his students and community.

“I appreciate School Connect’s dedication to public education and its willingness to recognize individuals who believe that every student must be engaged in meaningful real-life learning that meets their strengths and needs. It takes a village to do this work. Schools cannot do it alone. Thank you for taking the time to recognize the efforts of so many in our communities who make it happen for our kids.”
Marcie Hutchinson, President, Mesa Public Schools Governing Board
