HPU High Point UniversityHIGH POINT, N.C., May 9, 2013 – Dr. Beth Holder, associate professor of special education in the School of Education at High Point University, was recently honored as Community Partner of the Year by Communities in Schools of Guilford County.

“This award serves as a testimony to the wonderful partnership we in the High Point University School of Education have with High Point Communities in Schools,” says Holder. “We love building relationships with our community partners, and this award is shared with HPU and our outstanding students who serve the community on an on-going basis.”

Holder says thanks to the partnership with Communities in Schools, students enrolled in her “Nature of the Learner” course have the opportunity to take part in several projects at area schools; including providing classroom assistance and tutoring at Union Hill Elementary, Welborn Middle School and Andrews High School; organized community days at the School of Education; made over a teacher’s classroom; and volunteered on field trips.

Communities in Schools is the nation’s leading organization dedicated to surrounding students with a community of support and empowering them to stay in school. For more than 30 years, Communities in Schools has been bringing caring adults into schools to address children’s unmet needs and providing a link between educators and the community.
