Congratulations to Ms. Lindsey Blevins, Skyland's counselor, who has recently been awarded the Charles Stewart Mott Award from the Alabama Community Education Association!
The president of the association commended Ms. Blevins for going above and beyond the call for afterschool programming, having served thousands of students and families. The association also noted that Ms. Blevins' service has definitely not gone unnoticed. She will be honored at the virtual ACEA 2021 Conference.
This is the highest award made by ACEA in memory of the person who started community education in Flint, Michigan in the 1930's. Charles Stewart Mott, who once stated "Let us be known by our deeds," left a legacy far greater than the General Motors Corporation he helped found.
The Mott Foundation continues to this day to be a national and international leader in promoting democratic ideals, which include community education, grass-roots citizen participation, and global awareness of man and his close relationship to the good earth.
