The Greater Essex County District School Board wishes to recognize its community partners for their generous contributions to our schools. Our community partners devote thousands of volunteer hours and make generous financial and in-kind contributions that make a real difference to our students. This valuable support significantly enriches the learning environment and positively impacts students in the classroom.
Each year nominations are put forth by GECDSB staff to a committee, chaired by the Director of Education, and up to 10 individuals or organizations are selected for this honour. A celebration is held as part of a public meeting of the Board of Trustees at which time a citation for the community partner is shared and their outstanding contributions celebrated.
Nominations for the awards open in the spring of each year.
