Pacesetter Honors

CELEBRATING OUR BRIGHTEST STARS

GLRhomepageThis year, 38 communities across the nation have been recognized as Pacesetters for “leading by example” to solve one or more of the challenges that can undermine early literacy – school readiness, school attendance, and summer learning.

 “Pacesetter Honors are among the highest awards presented by the Campaign,” said Ralph Smith, CGLR managing director. “We are very proud of these communities and the organizations and individuals behind them for joining forces and working tirelessly to uplift children and families. They remind us that we are seeing great progress and real results all across the country.”
