W.K. Kellogg Foundation grantee, Excellent Schools Detroit – a true champion for education - is the 2012 recipient of Playworks Detroit’s Game Changers Inclusion Award presented on March 21, 2012 at the “Get in The Game” luncheon.
A coalition of education, government, community, parent and nonprofit leaders, Excellent Schools Detroit has developed a citywide education plan to help ensure that all Detroit children are in an excellent school by 2020. Its goal is to see 90 percent of the city's students graduating from high school, 90 percent of them going on to college or quality career training and 90 percent of them being ready to succeed at college or career training without needing remedial education.
The Playworks Detroit 2012 “Get in the Game” luncheon and “Game Changer Awards” were created to recognize individuals, companies and organizations that are making a positive impact on the well-being of Detroit.
Join us in congratulating Excellent Schools Detroit and the other award winners making a difference.
