Virginia B. Smith Award

 
  M. Susana Navarro
M. Susana Navarro, executive director of the El Paso Collaborative for Academic Excellence, has received the Virginia B. Smith Innovative Leadership Award for the year 2000.

Since 1991, Navarro has been directing the Collaborative, an unusual partnership of the University of Texas, El Paso, and the public schools that has led to significantly improved student performance in schools in and around El Paso.

"Dr. Navarro has demonstrated an extraordinary level of leadership, bringing together the city's education, business and civic leaders to focus on preparing all students to become educated citizens," said Charles I. Bunting, of the Council for Adult and Experiential learning (CAEL).

The Virginia B. Smith Award, named for the President Emerita of Vassar College, has been established to encourage and support leadership and innovation in American higher education. The endowed award is jointly administered by CAEL and the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education.
