Blog: MHS Renaissance Coordinator Receives National Award

Monrovia High School's Renaissance Coordinator receives the highest honor at the National Renaissance Conference in Orlando last weekend!

Monrovia High School’s very own teacher Paul Dols was recognized at the National Renaissance Conference last weekend in Orlando receiving the prestigious National Coordinator of the Year Award

This conference brings together students, teachers, and administrators from states across America including Canada to learn from each other and to celebrate student and school successes. The conference is hosted by Jostens and the awards were presented by two Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients Colonel Jack Jacobs and Lt. Colonel Hal Fritz. 

The award is given to individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty taking academic recognition to the next level and who exude a passion for changing lives. Paul teaches the Renaissance leadership class at MHS responsible for events that include things such as scholar athlete night, passport to success for freshmen, student of the month, staffulty of the month, sign on the line, class reward days, G.P.A. honor cards, and the list goes on. 

Paul is entering his fourth year as coordinator and has done a tremendous job connecting students to MHS and recognizing their many efforts. He is in the process of expanding his efforts district wide so that every school has an aspect of Renaissance with the goal of changing lives, saving lives, and impacting futures! Congratulations Paul!

--MHS Principal Darvin Jackson
