On October 8, we celebrated students, educators and partners at our 6th Annual Champions of Education fundraiser presented by Ford Motor Company Fund. The event, which took place at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, raised funds to provide DPSCD children with educational experiences that will ensure students are college and career ready. Thank you to everyone who attended for helping us reach our fundraising goal that evening!

Roop Raj of Fox 2 served as the evening’s master of ceremonies and remarks were given by Superintendent Nikolai Vitti and Randolph Vocational School student Damon Smith. The talents of DPSCD students were showcased, with performances from Detroit School of Arts Jazz Band, the Renaissance High School Choir, and the Cass Technical High School Dance Workshop. The event honored the eleven DPSCD Educators of the Year, as well as community partners The Skillman Foundation and Ally Financial.
