School District of Palm Beach County Superintendent Donald E. Fennoy II is a finalist for the prestigious Green-Garner Award, presented by the Council of the Great City Schools. Nominees for the award are judged on their attributes in five key areas: leadership, achievement, public confidence, professionalism, and involvement.

“Dr. Fennoy is a tireless advocate for equity and access, and he is successful as a superintendent because he is adept at dealing with a vast cross-section of people,” said Chuck Shaw, District 2 school board member and vice-chair, who nominated Dr. Fennoy for the award. “Whether he is speaking to parents, giving presentations to businesses, talking to a Parent Teacher Association, or working with a government agency, he is always focused on the needs of students.”

The Green-Garner Award is part of the Council of Great City School’s commitment to recognizing and supporting outstanding leadership in urban education, in honor of Richard R. Green and Edward Garner. Dr. Green was the former chancellor of New York City Public Schools, and Mr. Garner was a businessman and former school board president for Denver Public Schools.

Along with nationwide recognition and a special profile in the Council of the Great City Schools newsletter, Urban Educator, the winner of the Green-Garner award will receive a $10,000 college scholarship to present to a high school senior from their school system.

A distinguished panel will select the Green-Garner Award winner from the group of finalists that includes superintendents from around the country. The winner will be announced and honored at the virtual annual fall conference on October 15.
