In recognition of Dr. Ernest B. Fleishman—a champion of educators, long-time member of the Alliance Board of Directors, and former senior executive at Scholastic Inc.—the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers is proud to announce the formation of the Dr. Ernest B. Fleishman Educators’ Fund. Donations to this fund will recognize outstanding art and writing educators affiliated with the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.
Ernie’s remarkable knowledge of, and passion for, education have been shaped by the many roles he has played, and continues to play: a leader of Scholastic Inc.’s National Advisory Council and holder of executive positions at the organization; Superintendent of Greenwich Public Schools; and a builder of partnerships among school districts, superintendents, teachers, administrators, and the U.S. Department of Education, among other responsibilities.
The Dr. Ernest B. Fleishman Educators’ Fund will allow the Alliance to provide recognition, professional-development opportunities, and classroom materials to educators whose students excel in the Awards, especially those from under-resourced communities. We proudly commit to these efforts to celebrate Ernie’s dedicated thought leadership and care for educators. Please join us in recognizing Ernie’s tremendous career by making a donation to support educators today.
