On October 26th, at the Atlanta Public Schools’ “APyeS! Awards,” Morehouse School of Medicine was named the 2016-17 “School-Based Partner of the Year” for our partnership with Tuskegee Airmen Global Academy. The award recognizes the organization voted as the most committed school-based partner within the 11 high school “clusters” in the Atlanta Public School District. Two months ago, MSM was named the “Partner of the Year” for the Booker T. Washington High School cluster, which made us finalist for the top honor announced yesterday.

Kudos to Mr. Lincoln Woods, principal of the Tuskegee Airmen Global Academy, for nominating MSM and allowing us to be a part of the lives of his students.The faculty, staff and learners at MSM have worked tirelessly to uphold the mission of this great institution, and Dr. Rita Finley and her team in the Office of Educational Outreach and Health Careers have done an outstanding job managing this extraordinary pipeline partnership. This is a testament to what can be achieved through commitment and teamwork.
