We are pleased to announce that this year’s event will honor outstanding champions in the fight to ensure access to quality public education for every student:

  • PNC Bank: for PNC Grow Up Great©, a national, early childhood education initiative that demonstrates PNC’s extraordinary commitment to children; and its support of the Equal Justice Works Fellowship, which encourages and enables new lawyers to pursue careers in public interest law;
  • Joan Mazzotti: for her 16 years of outstanding leadership as the Executive Director of Philadelphia Futures, a mentoring and college access organization for Philadelphia’s public school students;
  • ELC Pro Bono Awardee Richard Shephard of Morgan Lewis: for his exceptional work as pro bono counsel, making lasting contributions to the lives of many vulnerable families.
  • Dr. Bruce Campbell Jr., PhD, for his invaluable service to ELC, as he rotates out of the chairman position on our Board of Directors. Dr. Campbell is an Arcadia University Associate Professor in the School of Education.
