Tulare County Excellence in Education

The Excellence in Education Awards began in Tulare County in 1995. The purpose of the Excellence in Education Awards is to recognize school employees in Tulare County who exemplify the best in education and a commitment to Tulare County students. The event, which is a co-sponsorship between Tulare County Superintendent of Schools Jim Vidak and EECU, honors the Administrator/Manager of the Year, Teacher of the Year and School Employee of the Year. A sculpture entitled "Graduation Day" was created by the late artist Clement Renzi and was commissioned by EECU. He also created a smaller version entitled "The Graduate," which is given to each award winner. All nominees receive a framed, numbered, personalized limited-edition print of "The Graduation Day" sculpture. The winners, finalists and nominees are recognized at a breakfast and awards ceremony held at the Visalia Convention Center and funded by EECU.
