Seven outstanding educators in the Boston and Cambridge community were honored by the Graduate School of Education (HGSE) on June 2 at the Faculty Club. The Conant Awards, which are given to support the professional growth of exemplary public school teachers and administrators, were awarded to Christine Colbath-Hess (Haggerty School), Robert Comeau (Another Course to College School), Folashade Cromwell (Young Achievers Science and Math Pilot School), Mary Skipper (TechBoston Academy), Christopher Stapel (Boston Community Leadership Academy), Emily Qailbash (Center for Leadership Development), and Gail Ranere-Nunes (Cambridgeport School).

The fellowships are based on academic and professional achievements, and provide a stipend for a year of full-time study at HGSE. As a stipulation of the award, fellows are required to continue in their school systems for one year after receiving their advanced degree.
