21st ANNUAL EDUCATION HERO AWARD GALA

More than 450 guests filled the ballroom of the Mandarin Oriental for the 21st Annual Education Hero Award Gala. The Foundation honored Michael J. Brown and Barrick Gold Corporation with its prestigious Education Hero Award. Hall of Fame boxing referee Richard Steele was honored with the Champion of Children Award and Nevada Senator Debbie Smith (posthumously) was celebrated with the Lifetime Education Achievement Award.
“Each honoree has left an indelible legacy on public education in our community and state,” said Judi Steele, President and CEO of The Public Education Foundation. “The Education Hero Award Gala celebrated the heroes in our midst and thanked them for their extraordinary commitment to improving public education for our children.”
The gala, which included a silent and live auction, raised money to support the Foundation’s work to improve the quality of teaching and learning in Southern Nevada’s public schools.
