We also took great joy in ACSA’s recognition of our Chris Thomas for his phenomenal contribution to our Region and his students as Assistant Professor of Education of the Year at the University of San Francisco. Thanks, Chris.  Both awards are statewide recognitions! Congratulations to Carlos and Chris, as well as the folks who supported their nominations. Great work!
