On Thursday October 20th, 2011, THINK Together was awarded the 2011 Hero in Education Award by the Lake Elsinore Unified School District (LEUSD) for their continued outstanding work in the region. The award honors individuals and organizations that have made and continue to make significant and lasting contributions to the Lake Elsinore educational community. THINK Together has been a district partner for more than five years, and currently serves nearly 1,000 children at seven elementary and three middle schools. The entire THINK Together Lake Elsinore staff and THINK Founder/CEO Randy Barth attended the awards ceremony; all staff were present on stage to accept the award.
The LEUSD is considered to be one of the most successful K-12 school districts in the state in closing the achievement gap, and has been recognized by Education Trust-West for their work in student achievement. THINK Together programs are an integral part of the district’s strategy to sustain high achievement. When students attend THINK Together programs aligned with the instructional day, they excel academically. Learn more at www.THINKtogether.org.
