The Santa Clarita Valley Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) has named College of the Canyons its Golden Apple Award honoree for the 2015-16 academic year.
Each year, the Golden Apple Award is presented to a single person, company, organization or institution that works to collectively support the SCV’s elementary and high school districts.
College of the Canyons was roundly recognized for a wide range of educational support, outreach and volunteer programs directed at serving local students and community members.
“The Santa Clarita Valley ACSA has selected an outstanding honoree that goes above and beyond to assist our schools and help them to be the wonderful institutions that they are,” Eran Zeevi, president of the SCV ACSA, said during the award presentation.
“I would like to thank, on behalf of the Santa Clarita Valley, a special organization who has impacted all (SCV) schools and districts in so many positive ways.”
College of the Canyons Chancellor Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook said the award recognizes a college-wide commitment to partnerships.
