PARTNERS IN EDUCATION 2013-14 has been an outstanding year for the Partners in Education (P.I.E.) program, with over 900 active partners working with 35 schools and various district departments. P.I.E. provides over $1.6 million in funding, thousands of volunteer hours and countless in-kind services to improve student achievement in all subject areas, enrich students’ life experiences, help grow career opportunities, and boost educator support and morale. Through relationships with partners students, teachers and schools are succeeding at higher levels and improving the overall quality of life in Cumming-Forsyth County. A testament to these accomplishments is the Don Hendricks Partnership Award, the highest honor that a P.I.E. can receive. The Hendricks family established this award in 2002 after the passing of their father, a long-time member of the Board of Education. This award is given to the partner who best exemplifies “quality learning and superior performance for all” and demonstrates loyalty to the school system and to the community. Past recipients include:

2002 The Kroger Company Stores 2003 Regions Bank 2004 Outback Steakhouse 2005 Northside Hospital - Forsyth 2006 Keep Forsyth County Beautiful 2007 United Way 2008 Jim and Jeanne DeSana

2009 John Heath RE/MAX 400 North and Your Results Team 2010 Georgia United Credit Union 2011 The Place of Forsyth County 2012 RBM of Atlanta North 2013 Siemens Industry, Inc.
