College For Every Student honors national educators

College For Every Student (CFES) honored two educators from Connecticut and Florida for their work in helping low-income youth prepare for, gain access to, and succeed in college. At the 2013 CFES National Conference in Albany, Dr. Lynda George, School of Education and Professional Studies professor at Central Connecticut State University, and Lem Andrews, Financial Aid Counselor at Booker High School, received the Mario Peña Award in front of 420 CFES K-12 educators, students, college representatives, and corporate leaders.

Each year, CFES presents the Mario Peña Award to exceptional educators who help the organization develop and expand school-college collaborations that increase college access and success for underserved youth.

In presenting the awards, CFES CEO and President Rick Dalton said, “These two educators go the extra mile every day to help our CFES Scholars become college ready and ultimately college successful.”
