Sample Pic The annual award program recognizes businesses for improving the academic success of all students, and this year, nearly 90 organizations throughout the state were honored.

Mosaic was recognized as “an integral and indispensible partner of the Hardee County School District … the people of Mosaic recognized the needs of our students and used their hands and hearts as well as their time and energy to expand the horizons and fill gaps for many students.”
   
Florida Department of Education Commissioner Dr. Eric J. Smith, along with members of the Florida Education Foundation and State Board of Education members Kathleen Shanahan and Mark Kaplan, VP-Public Affairs and Policy for Mosaic announced the winners during the Florida Association of District School Superintendents and Florida School Boards Association Joint Conference last week.
   
The Commissioner’s Business Recognition Awards are administered by the Florida Department of Education and the Florida Education Foundation to encourage successful alliances within the business community and among local school districts for the benefit of Florida’s students.
