On May 3rd, the six-month anniversary of The National Catholic Board on Full Inclusion, we decided to honor inclusive Catholic educators who are the silent, heroic, fly-under-the-radar-just-do-the-right-thing type. The award highlights people who have been inclusive just because it is the right thing to do…they have unhesitatingly said yes and found a way to make it work. They are doing the work behind the scenes…without any glory…just because of their humble faith and their dedication to all students. We have called this award The Dandy Award.
