CONGRATULATIONS TO CHRIS BEST,
RUBENSTEIN AWARD WINNER!!


The Rubenstein Award for Highly Effective Faculty is one of the District of Columbia Public School’s top honors, and the selection process is very competitive. Chris Best, the Custodial Foreman at Columbia Heights Educational Campus received a Rubenstein Award for 2013-2014 and this well-deserved recognition reflects his lasting impact on our school. Mr. Best is one of only two support staff city-wide to receive this honor - it was said by the DCPS nominating committee that "he stood out among the many candidates as an outstanding asset to DCPS."

Mr. Best has been with CHEC since 2004, and with the DC Public Schools since 1985. It is well known to the entire CHEC community that he is an inspirational natural leader and an excellent role model for our students. It really is our good fortune that he is an institution on the Campus.  

He will be presented with his award during the A Standing Ovation ceremony at the Kennedy Center on November 4th. This is the third year running that a CHEC staff member has received recognition at the DCPS Standing Ovation Ceremony – Principal Maria Tukeva in 2011, Middle School Assistant Principal Mayra Canizales in 2012, and now Mr. Best in 2013.
