Congratulations to Dr. Stan Cox and the faculty, staff, and students of Lee-Scott Academy for receiving the AISA Blue Ribbon Award and the President's Award for the 2016-2017 school year! Dr. Cox received the awards at the AISA annual meeting held in Montgomery on Wednesday, July 19.

The AISA Blue Ribbon Award program recognizes member schools with outstanding educational programs. In order to be considered for the AISA Blue Ribbon Award, a school must complete a rigorous application process and exemplify excellence in scholastic achievement, professional learning, student involvement and community interaction.

The President's Award was established by the AISA for the specific purpose of recognizing member schools that achieve academic excellence during the school year and it is awarded to only one school per academic classification, which are based on student enrollment. The criteria for winning the AISA President's Award includes achievement in all areas of school excellence such as: academic achievement, professional development, extra-curricular involvement, school improvement and other activities that celebrate excellence in education. In addition, this award also serves as a symbol of recognition to the individuals who have given unselfishly of their time to serve as President to the Alabama Independent School Association.
