The A.C.E. (Accepting the Challenge of Excellence) Award recognizes high school students who have had to overcome great physical, emotional, or social obstacles and are now eligible for high school graduation. This program encourages students who have overcome almost unbelievable hardships to graduate from high school and to recognize them as they are all too often overlooked for their accomplishments. This recognition serves as a powerful example to all students that hard work and perseverance really do matter.
Two of our past winners, Sarah Brown and Jackie Wax Adcock, won the national A.C.E. Award and received $10,000 scholarships.
