The Board of Directors of Partners in Education (PIE) recently awarded its top honor, the Gold Achievement Award, to Communicorp and its partner Edgewood Elementary School.The partnership was also recognized as one of the top ten in the Columbus area.
PIE is a program administered by The Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce and involves over 100 schools and approximately 240 businesses, churches, military units and other organizations dedicated to enriching the lives of students in our area classrooms.
Gold Level recognition can be attained only by a fully engaged partner with both a human and a financial investment in enriching the life experiences of students, improving academic performance, growing career opportunities and providing faculty development and enrichment.
“Fully engaged” has meant a lot of hands-on involvement at Edgewood Elementary. Communicorp employees have painted faces, judged competitions, provided resources for classroom activities, hosted tours of Communicorp for students, honored the faculty and staff on National Teacher Appreciate Day and even persuaded Santa to visit the school.
The Gold Achievement Award is a significant honor to Communicorp, but the most noteworthy achievement is the benefit to so many of the Edgewood Elementary students who were involved in the PIE program.
