    Congratulations to Eykis Chavarro for being awarded the Broad Prize for Urban Education. The annual $1 million Broad Prize for Urban Education was created by The Eli and Edy Broad Foundation to honor school districts that demonstrate the greatest overall performance and improvement in student achievement, while at the same time reducing achievement gaps across ethnic groups and between low-income and non-low-income students.

Graduating seniors from Broad Prize winning and finalist districts are eligible for two or four-year scholarships, depending on the type of higher education institution they choose to attend. Congratulations, Eykis. We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
