EDUCATION AWARDS

EDUCATION AWARDS

A significant event on the Cincinnatus Association calendar is our annual Education Awards Banquet in February, where we celebrate teachers, administrators and volunteers who are making outstanding contributions to education in our community.

Cincinnatus collaborates for this event with the colleges of education at the University of Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky University, Xavier University and Mount St. Joseph University. Each university presents an Excellence in Education Award to an outstanding teacher.
