Educational Policy and Planning doctoral student Chloe Latham Sikes was awarded the Ginny Looney Servant Leader Award upon completion of her summer fellowship with the Southern Education Foundation. One fellow from the Summer Education Leadership Initiative receives the award each year.
The award is designed to provide an opportunity for a young, emerging leader to receive special recognition and reward for making a very significant contribution to an advocacy effort and to have an initial experience as a donor supporting the compelling work of others.
“I was honored to receive the award this year,” says Sikes. “I made a designated contribution to the Mexica-American Lega Defense and Education Fund for their work in advancing racial equity in the Texas school finance system and their admirable legal advocacy for immigrant students and communities.”
