Gant Kaufman Award Made
At the May 12, 2021 United Partners for Human Services annual conference in Tallahassee the winner of the Gant Kaufman Award was announced. A combined award of $1000 was made to Faith Presbyterian Church Preschool and Kindergarten. The school was recognized form their diversity scholarship program for families who cannot afford tuition for preschool and after-care. Students receiving the scholarships come from a variety of diverse backgrounds, including non-English speaking families, single-parent families and families with housing instability.
The 21st Century Council, with the College of Education at Florida State University and the UPHS are proud to recognize this year’s winner as co-sponsors of the award. With the passing of Dr. Roger Kaufman this past year, the award took on additional significance.
