This project launched during the 2012-13 School Year. Distinguished Scholars from Great Falls and C.M.R High Schools are selected based on academic achievement, GPA, and course work. In addition, counselors and administrators from the high schools and Paris Gibson Education Center select Distinguished Achievers. The Distinguished Achievers are selected based on leadership, classroom achievement, service or their ability to overcome obstacles. Each scholar and achiever then chooses a teacher who has been influential in his or her education. The Foundation prepares a booklet honoring those teachers. The Excellence in Education booklet is distributed to the public through the Great Falls Tribune.
