New York, New York (PRWEB) February 05, 2014
The Middle College National Consortium (MCNC) is proud to announce that Mattie Adams, from Harbor Teacher Preparation Academy at Los Angeles Harbor College, is the recipient of Los Angeles Unified School District Principal of the Day. She is only the eighth L.A. Unified School District Principal of the Day.
Since 2012 Principal Adams has served as an executive board member of both the New York based Middle College National Consortium and the California Coalition of Early and Middle Colleges, of which she is a founding member.
In 2002 Ms. Adams opened an Early College High School on the campus of Los Angeles Harbor College in which she is currently going on her 12th year as founding principal. HTPA high school students have earned a dual Associate Arts degree at over a 55% rate, and 95% of graduating seniors complete at least one year of college by the time they leave high school.
Dr. Cecilia Cunningham, founder and Director, of the Middle College National Consortium, upon learning of Ms. Adam’s award stated that “I have worked with Mattie for over ten years and I can’t think of a more deserving person to receive recognition for the incredible work she is doing in education with under served students.”
Middle College National Consortium, headquartered in New York City, is a leader in the movement to establish and sustain high school/college dual enrollment as a viable and necessary educational model. Additionally, MCNC is dedicated to developing and sustaining small schools in which high school students, especially those who have been previously underserved by their former schools, can earn both a high school diploma and either an associate’s degree or transferable college credits upon graduation.
