2010 Keystone Achievement Awards Recognize Pennsylvania Schools for
Academic Achievement
More than 2,100 Pennsylvania schools are being honored with
Keystone Achievement Awards for demonstrating sustained academic achievement
over two school years, acting Education Secretary Thomas E. Gluck said today.
“Just as schools proudly display trophies for athletic and extracurricular
accomplishments, displaying a Keystone Achievement Award is a way to
acknowledge the school’s academic accomplishments,” Gluck said. “These awards
reinforce the hard work our schools are doing and the success their students are
achieving. Keystones reflect the commitment of students, families, teachers and the
entire education community.”
