GEORGIA SCHOOL BOARDS ASSOCIATION LEADING EDGE AWARD & BEACON AWARD
The Baldwin County Board of Education recognized the Baldwin County School District for being selected by the Georgia School Boards Association (GSBA) for the Leading Edge Award. The Leading Edge Award highlights school districts that are leading the way in ensuring students are competitive in an ever-changing global market. The award recognizes unique achievement in innovative design and implementation of projects and programs by local school boards that are having a significant positive impact on students’ achievement and engagement. The nomination for the GSBA Leading Edge Award highlighted the Bee Well Clinic and the innovative initiatives that have been put in place such as the telehealth service that the clinic now offers at all of our schools.
The school board also recognized Mr. Rahul Bali of the Oconee Radio Group for receiving the Georgia School Boards Association's 2020 Beacon Award. The Beacon Award recognizes print and electronic media representatives or organizations whose coverage over time (rather than a one-time project or article) has created an understanding of public education issues by informing the general public about programs, policies and/or issues affecting the public schools, students, and/or communities. The Beacon Award & the Leading Edge Award was delivered virtually at the GSBA virtual awards ceremony on Friday, December 4.
