KEF Platinum Award for Excellence in Education
The Kalispell Education Foundation has launched the Platinum Award for Excellence in Education which provides a unique opportunity for community members to recognize favorite teachers, administrators, or other school staff and leaders.
With a donation to KEF, contributors may name a distinguished mentor and include a personal note to be delivered with the award. The educator will receive a personalized card with the donor’s message, a lapel pin, acknowledgement of their distinction from their school principal, and recognition of their honor on this website.
Platinum Awards may be designated a any time for holiday gifts, teacher appreciation, retirement, or any time a student or family wishes to show their appreciation for an exceptional educator. The process of honoring a favorite educator is easy. Simply choose the tab at right to go to the printable form for your nomination. Then you may mail the form with a check ($10 minimum) to KEF. Alternatively, make your donation online, and then email the information requested on the form to Anna Marie Bailey. For questions feel free to give us a call at 755-3965.
