We are in Washington D.C. for the Blue Ribbon Award Ceremony. Today we had excellent meetings with Senator Stabenow, Senator Peters and Congresswoman Dingell. Congratulations to Haigh Elementary, the Henry Ford Early College, Dearborn Public Schools, Henry Ford College and Henry Ford Hospital for receiving a Blue Ribbon Award which is the highest possible award that is given by the US department of Education. Only 13 schools in Michigan have received the award with over 8,100 schools in the state. In addition, Dearborn Public Schools has now received 5 Blue Ribbons in five years (only one other district in the state has achieved that many in the same timeframe).
Live Stream Information is listed below from the US Department of Education:
