NEA awarded the Social Justice Activist Award to Jose Lara, a social studies teacher at Santee Education Complex High School in Los Angeles, for his work in educational justice. The award is given to an NEA member who demonstrates the ability to lead, organize and engage educators, parents, and the community to advocate on social justice issues that impact the lives of students, fellow educators, and the communities they serve.

The NEA Friend of Education was awarded to Patricia de Stacy Harrison, president and CEO of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), and Paula A. Kerger, president and CEO of the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). “Education is at the heart of our mission at PBS,” said Kerger to delegates, “because we are accessible in every home across the country, we have a tremendous responsibility to use our airwaves to prepare children for success in school and in life.”
