Seeking Nominations for New CEA Award

Do you know someone who has dedicated his or her life to supporting students, made outstanding contributions to the improvement of the teaching profession, and promoted excellence in public education?

We’re seeking nominations for a new CEA award named in honor of the late Clifford Silvers, a tireless advocate for teachers rights and excellence in public education. Silvers, who passed away in 2017, was a longtime CEA UniServ Rep, manager, and labor arbitrator.

CEA’s Clifford Silvers Education Advocacy Award will be presented to a group or individual member of the education community at the CEA Representative Assembly in May.

The deadline for entering is February 23.
