Schools That Can Awards Luncheon

The two-day conference concludes with the Leaders That Can Awards Luncheon, which recognizes exceptional individuals and organizations for their leadership and work on behalf of their community. We are thrilled this year to honor Dr. Nancy Cantor of Rutgers-Newark and Prudential. Also, during the luncheon we present the Robert F. Kennedy Urban Education Awards in partnership with RFK Human Rights to a student, teacher and school leader in our network who exemplify the legacy of Robert F. Kennedy. This year, Cara Kennedy Cuomo will present the awards. We hope you will join us, tickets and tables can be purchased through the link below.
