The North Central P-16 Council is now taking nominations for the seventh annual BEST (Businesses Empowering Students and Teachers) Awards. The North Central P-16 Council is made up of area secondary school educators, higher education leaders, and business people, and led by Volunteer State Community College. The goal of P-16 is to promote the relationship between education and the value of work, develop a highly trained workforce, and create a culture of lifelong learning by positively impacting student success through awareness, advocacy, and action. 

The BEST Award celebrates the accomplishments of community leaders and supporters, business owners, and entrepreneurs. It honors those who share knowledge and expertise, advocate, and foster student success in Pre-K through postsecondary education. The Council will award five BEST Awards annually, one in each of the counties served by the North Central P-16 Council.  Public and private businesses or individuals who work for an employer in Macon, Robertson, Sumner, Trousdale, and Wilson counties may be nominated or may self-nominate. The nomination deadline is August 15.  To nominate an individual, please visit this website and complete the nomination form.
