Excellence in Education Program
Excellence in Education is a program produced by the Auburn Hills Chamber's Education Commmittee to celebrate the youth of our community. Program partners, including Oakland University, Baker College, Oakland Community College, Central Michigan University and Avondale Schools collaborate to offer a special evening for 150 parents, teachers, students and school leaders.
Through Excellence each school within Auburn Hills, both public and private, selects a student which exemplifies the quality of excellence within their community. The criteria includes academics, but character, extra-curricular activity, and volunteerism is just as important. Once students are identified, they then write a letter to the teacher who has made the most impact on their success. The letters are read during the annual Excellence in Education banquet each spring.
The business community supports this event through table sponsorship and scholarships. Tuition reimbursement is also offered by many of the participating academic partners.
