In 2013, ACCSC announced the launch of a new award, the Commitment to Education Award, designed to recognize the outstanding efforts of a member of an ACCSC-accredited school’s staff who is providing outstanding contributions in support of the school’s mission, its students, and the community that it serves. In recognizing the inaugural award winner, the Commission considered many factors, including efforts put forth on behalf of students to improve the quality of education the school and the facilitation of partnerships within the employment community on behalf of students and graduates.
2013 Commitment to education award
Antonelli Institute - Erdenheim, Pennsylvania
Edward Zawora serves as Lead Instructor in the Graphic Design program at Antonelli Institute, as well as the Career Services Coordinator for the Graphic Design students and alumni. Being familiar with the students from his role in the classroom and with employers from his ongoing professional activities, Edward has proven uniquely able to successfully match Graphic Design graduates and employers. Edward was also instrumental in getting Antonelli Institute involved with the Philly Ad Club and has since served on their Education Committee which has led to the development of two Philly
Futures Scholarships for Antonelli students. Edward also mentors his students and makes a concerted effort to underscore the importance for students to use their talents and give back to their community by working with organizations like Philly Reads, Make a Film Foundation, and the Overbrook Environmental Education Center.
Please join ACCSC in congratulation Edward Zawora as the recipient of the 2013 Commitment to Education Award.
