The Foundation for Excellence Celebrates 40 Years!

Since 1983, the Foundation for Excellence in Public Education has been working in partnership with the Clarke County School District recognizing the inspiring work of their educators, staff, and students. Throughout 2023, the Foundation for Excellence will celebrate this continued partnership through different activities and announcements. 


40th Anniversary Student Art Contest

In December 2022, an all call was made to all Clarke County School District students to submit art work for the FFE's 40th anniversary. Over 30 entries were submitted for voting on the Foundation's Facebook page. In February 2023, the winner was announced! Congratulations to Emma Raccoursier Altamirano, a 3rd grader at Winterville Elementary School.
