Dr. Michael Grego has been selected to receive the Education Leadership Award from the Hispanic Education CDr. Michael Grego oalition of Palm Beach County for promoting educational equity for Hispanic/Latino students.

In April 2019, the school district honored more than 460 high-achieving Hispanic students at the awards ceremony.


Dr. Grego will be recognized in October at the 5th Annual Hispanic Leadership Awards Luncheon in West Palm Beach.
