The Mississippi Association of Partners in Education will recognize Mississippi’s top school community partnerships during the 18th annual Governor’s Awards luncheon on Thursday, March 5 at Lake Terrace Convention Center in Hattiesburg. The luncheon is part of activities planned for the Mississippi Vision for Education Partnership Conference featuring keynote speakers, exclusive workshops and partnership training.
 
MAPE will present the conference in partnership with Program of Research and Evaluation for Public Schools, Inc. (PREPS). Conference details and registration instructions are available at www.mapems.com, including reservations for the Governor's Awards luncheon.
 
MAPE will award 24 school-community partnership programs that have produced outstanding results for students in K-12 public schools throughout Mississippi. Award-winning schools, districts and organizations are located in Clinton, Hattiesburg, Jackson, Meridian, Vicksburg, Pascagoula/Gautier, Petal, Starkville, Tupelo, Harrison County, Pearl River County, and Rankin County. “When we talk about improving school performance in Mississippi, partnerships should always be an important part of the conversation — and the Governor’s Awards recognition illustrates this point,” said Dr. Leslie Griffin, MAPE president. “The 2020 Governor’s Award winners exemplify the many creative ways that schools and communities across Mississippi are working together to improve student outcomes. Their success stories are truly making a difference. We congratulate our award winners!” The Governor’s Award selection committee, comprising representatives from business, industry, nonprofits and education, judged each entry using a uniform set of criteria to measure overall effectiveness of partnership activities.
