Q: How many VIPs does it take to properly honor an outstanding educator?
A: As many as can possibly make it to the event.
There are few things that can make a bigger impact on a child’s life than a talented, passionate educator. And there is no better way to inspire the next generation of such educators than to honor those who are making the greatest difference today.
