Nominations open for our annual AchieveMpls Excellence Award

Excellence Award recipient, Dr. Padmini Udupa

Each year our AchieveMpls Excellence Award recognizes an outstanding community member who has gone above and beyond to further our mission of inspiring and equipping students for careers, college and life.

Our past honorees include Dr. Padmini Udupa, Longfellow Alternative High School Principal and leader in the development of a Step Up Youth Employment Program customized program for parenting interns; and Josie Morrow, a volunteer for our former Graduation Coaches program and a long-time Step Up supervisor.

We welcome your nominations of individuals who have provided outstanding support for students, significantly advanced our career and college readiness programs or have taken action to create positive change for young people and advance our core values of equity, inclusion and anti-racism. Our award will be presented at our November 12 Evening of Excellence House Party.
