Last night was the Academy Awards for NYC After School Programs! Hundreds gathered last night at the Cipriani for the annual Awards Benefit of the Partnership for Afterschool Education (PACE). Once a year some of the top experts and supporters for after school education gather to honor the top five after school educators in the city. This year, the New York City Urban Debate League was honored that Program Director Aubrey Semple was selected as one of the recipients of the award. We are thankful to the Partnership for Afterschool Education and so proud of Aubrey Semple who as a former high school debater with the urban debate league and now the Program Director of the Urban Debate League - shows the power of debate. And we thank all after school educators in New York City and the nation for making a difference on the lives of so many. Video of Aubrey - http://youtu.be/dEuHF9lnAr8.
