Dale R. Fair Babson Park Elementary, Hillcrest Elementary and Edward W. Bok Academy, and the Lake Wales Charter Schools System received the distinguished Excellence in Education from the Florida Charter School Alliance in Tallahassee. The Lake Wales Charter Schools superintendent, each school principal, along with students and teachers from each award-winning school were honored at a special private luncheon held at the Governor’s Clubhouse. Rep. Janet Adkins, chair of Education Choice & Innovations, presented the awards to each school and Superintendent Jesse Jackson during the luncheon.

While in Tallahassee the Lake Wales Charter Schools had the opportunity to attend some of the Senate and House Education Appropriations meetings to learn about our state political system, and had the great pleasure of meeting with the Lt. Gov. of Florida Carlos Lopez-Cantera.

“The recognition speaks volumes of the vision and our local citizens’ efforts to ensure high quality schools for all Lake Wales students,” said Superintendent Jackson. “I could not be more proud of this town and certainly of schools.”
