On March 18, 2016, the Clarksville-Montgomery County Education Foundation hosted the 27th year of student academic award recognition. The purpose of the Academic Awards Banquet is to honor students in the highest manner for academic excellence. To receive the academic achievement award, a student must maintain a 93 grade average with no grade lower than 85 in any one subject.
Students who are first- or second-year winners are honored at school assemblies in May and third year recipients are invited to be recognized at the Foundation sponsored banquet with their parents. This year, our annual awards banquet honored 191 high school students. Additionally, 846 students received awards for the first or second year.
On the evening of March 8, 2016, one hundred teachers received Teacher of The Year awards from the Education Foundation. Each recipient was chosen based off the nominations of fellow staff members in regards to the recipients’ dedication and hard work. The Education Foundation hosted a reception with light refreshments for the teachers at CMCSS Central Office, and they were also individually recognized at the CMCSS School Board meeting that followed.

To celebrate the close of the Annual City Saver coupon book campaign and reward Clarksville-Montgomery County elementary and middle school students who participated, a party was held at the APSU Foy Center on Saturday, February 27.
At the event, City Saver’s Tom Beach presented the CMC Education Foundation with a check for $190,000! Money raised will benefit CMCSS Schools. The Education Foundation would like to thank all who participated in this year’s fundraiser.
CMCSS and the CMC Education Foundation have partnered to sponsor the City Saver Education Funding Campaign for six years. This year’s campaign ran from January 15 – February 12, 2016. Last year’s campaign raised over $200,000 for local schools and the CMC Education Foundation, with a total of $1 million raised over the past five years.
