The College of Education was presented with a LTG (Ret) H.G. “Pete” Taylor Partnership of Excellence Award™ for higher education by the Military Child Education Coalition, or MCEC, at its 16th National Training Seminar in Washington, D.C., on July 30. Only three universities were recognized.

This award will be presented annually and encourages and applauds the outstanding partnerships formed between military installations and school districts that serve military children. Award winners are selected from schools and military installations around the world by MCEC, a non-profit organization dedicated to addressing the transition and educational issues affecting the highly mobile military child.

The college was recognized for its collaboration with Fort Riley, Geary County Schools USD 475, Manhattan-Ogden USD 383, Riley County USD 378, and Chapman Unified School District 473.
