Coleman receives prestigious award from Congressional Black Caucus

William F. Coleman III, CEO of the Detroit Public Schools, last week received an education award from the Congressional Black Caucus. The award is presented to exceptional leaders who are designing creative methods to reduce the gap in academic achievement and “establishing a legacy of educational empowerment in traditionally under-served communities across America.”
The award salutes “visionary leadership and commitment to inventing an equitable future in America.” Coleman, who became CEO on July 1, was nominated for the award by Michael Casserly, executive director of the Council of the Great City Schools, a Washington D.C. organization that represents 66 large urban public school systems.
The award was presented at a gala in Washington on Friday, September 23.
