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 Military Child Education Coalition presented well-deserved awards and recognition to outstanding schools, installations and individual program achievement at this year's National Training Seminar in Washington, DC. 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. 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, recognizing the efforts that exist in our colleges and universities, highlights and encourages the outstanding teacher preparation programs that include critical information and experience focusing on military-connected children.
