Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County receives Excellence in Education honors

Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County was honored Thursday as the 2016 recipient of the Monterey County School Boards Association’s “Excellence in Education Award.”

The award is given to organizations that offer education opportunities to students countywide, that make transformative and significant impact on students’ quality of life, that addresses an unmet, countywide student need, and demonstrates a commitment to exceeding expectation in pursuit of addressing the challenge.

“We are so honored to be recognized by the Monterey County School Boards Association,” said in a statement Donna Ferraro, President and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County, “We ourselves are not educators, but with the guidance, training, and support of MCOE, we provide effective and measurable programs that address critical after-school and summertime needs – like safety, nutrition, physical activity, mentoring, social and emotional development, homework help, summer learning loss prevention, and targeted academic interventions and solutions.”

Congratulations, Donna and team! I've seen the remarkable work you do for your club members and it's indeed an inspiration.
