J  Russell Kent Award RecipientsOn Monday, May 11, 2015 the Middle School Outreach Project (MSOP) received the prestigious J. Russell Kent Award by the San Mateo County School Boards Association (SMCSBA).

The J. Russell Kent Award recognizes innovative programs in San Mateo County that promote success in and out of the classroom.  Nominated programs are evaluated and selected based on the following criteria:

  1. Program Goals
  2. Program Description
  3. Evidence of Student Success
  4. Program Assessment
  5. Innovation
  6. Transferability, and
  7. Communication

The J. Russell Kent Award is a recognition of the hard work, dedication, and commitment of a passionate team of educators, administrators, and community leaders who have shared and believed in the vision of MSOP.

I would like to thank Dr. Regina Stanback Stroud, Dr. Angelica Garcia, Trustees Karen Schwarz, Thomas Mohr, and Dave Mandelkern, President’s Council members Teresa Proano and Steve Martinez, and our partners at Parkway Heights Middle School for their presence during this important recognition and their continued support of MSOP.
