Nominations are being accepted for the first ever Education & Workforce Hero Award.
The award recognizes an organization or individual that has provided significant support for education initiatives and projects that advance the Richardson Chamber of Commerce's education and workforce goals.
It will be presented at the Richardson Chamber of Commerce EDGE Awards in November 2018.
This recognition can be awarded to any corporation, small business, or individual who has been involved in RISD, PISD, Richland College, Collin College, UT Dallas, and any other education institution in North Texas. Preference will be given to members of the Richardson Chamber of Commerce, but membership in the Chamber is not a requirement. A special emphasis will be given for innovative initiatives that demonstrate evidence of impact to help students receive training and jobs.
Nominations will be accepted until Sept. 14, 2018.
