During his tenure as chairman of the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC), Lieutenant General (Ret) H.G. "Pete" Taylor played an important role in the establishment of partnerships between military installations and school districts serving military-connected children. In recognizing Lieutenant General Taylor's dedication and work toward assisting military children, the MCEC Board of Directors established the Pete Taylor Partnership of Excellence Award at its annual conference in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in July 2004.
The Pete Taylor Partnership of Excellence Award recognizes successful partnerships and projects that ultimately benefit military-connected children. The Award is given in two areas: K-12 and higher education. Given annually, the K-12 award may represent a single project in which a military installation and one or more school districts participated, or it may be a summation of the entire program between a military installation and the school districts serving an installation. The higher education award highlights and encourages the outstanding teacher preparation programs that include critical information and experience focusing on military-connected children.
The Military Child Education Coalition presents well-deserved awards and recognition to outstanding schools, installations, and individual program achievements at our Annual National Training Seminars (see photos below). The Lieutenant General (Ret) H.G. “Pete” Taylor Partnership of Excellence Award, recognizes successful partnerships and projects benefitting military children, and is given in two areas: K-12 and, new in 2014, higher education.
