January CBE Board of Trustees’ Report

Categories CBE

The CBE Legacy Award celebrates public education. It shines a spotlight on former students who live our beliefs—that a strong public education system is the foundation of our society, and the legacy of learning we create makes a world of difference for all of us.

Our former students positively impact our communities, our country, and our world. Legacy Award recipients will embody the foundation they received during their education and represent the legacy of the CBE: preparing students for life, work and inspiring life-long learning.

Our alumni are leaders, entrepreneurs, and difference-makers. They are artists, trail-blazers, and dedicated volunteers. We want to hear their stories and celebrate their success.

We expect to present the CBE Legacy Award several times a year at public board meetings, with the first award presented this month. All award nominations will be reviewed and award recipients selected by the CBE Board of Trustees.
