Hello, I’m Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. I’m pleased to celebrate with you as your
school is named a National Blue Ribbon School. We recognize and honor your important work,
preparing students for successful careers and meaningful lives. As a National Blue Ribbon School, your students’ success demonstrates what’s possible when committed educators partner with parents and community
leaders to create vibrant, challenging cultures of learning. I look forward to meeting you in Washington,
D.C. in November. Congratulations on your students’ accomplishments
and for your extraordinary commitment to meeting their unique needs. Now it’s my pleasure to introduce the 2019
National Blue Ribbon Schools.
