BPS Celebrates Partners in Education

Brevard Public Schools honored community partners at the 2024 Partners in Education Appreciation Event.


Over 300 people came together at the Astronauts Memorial Foundation inside the Kennedy Space Center for a space-themed event to celebrate the community's work and support of Brevard Public Schools during the 2023-24 school year.


The ceremony featured special guests, including School Board Chair Megan Wright from District 1; Superintendent Dr. Mark Rendell; Chief Strategic Communications Officer Russell Bruhn; Assistant Superintendent to Student Services Pamela Dampier; and Astronauts Memorial Foundation President & CEO Thad Altman.


Partners in Education coordinators from each BPS school were in attendance. They invited school partners and nominated one for overall partner of the year for their contributions to Brevard’s students.


Brevard County Festival of Wreaths was crowned BPS' overall partner of the year for its unwavering commitment to our schools, specifically to "Students in Transition," who are homeless and displaced students of Brevard Public Schools.


The work of all partners is valued and directly impacts the schools, students, and overall community.  We thank all the partners who came out to support our schools and our coordinators for the dedicated work they continue to do.
