“Parent of the Year”
Every year, Parents Step Ahead honors parents who have taken a proactive approach in their child’s educational and professional development. During a Gala celebration held in December, Parents Step Ahead recognizes those parents with a special awards ceremony.
To qualify for the Parent of the Year, parents or guardians must have attended one of the Parents Step Ahead seminars in the Dallas, Fort Worth, Irving, Garland, Richardson, or San Antonio areas during the prior school year. Parents who wish to be considered must write an essay about the importance of parental involvement in a child’s life. Their child must also submit an essay about why his/her parent should be selected.
A selection committee of local and national community and corporate leaders select the winners. Honorees receive an award, a computer system, other gifts and the opportunity to speak with local and national community and corporate leaders about the importance of education.
“Parents who have made such an effort to ensure a better future for their children – often at great personal sacrifice – should be recognized every day of their lives,” said Lupita Colmenero, Founder of Parents Step Ahead. “Parents Step Ahead is proud to give them the public recognition they deserve for the example they are setting for their children and the community.”
