Fitzgerald Innovation Award

“Innovation is significant positive change. It’s a result. It’s an outcome. It’s something you work towards achieving with a project.” 
—Scott Berkun, author and speaker

Dr. and Mrs. Rodney Fitzgerald are passionate about public education and have supported numerous academic initiatives in our community.  Together, Rodney and Margo were instrumental in the creation of the Bradley Cleveland Public Education Foundation to raise community awareness, gain financial support and enhance teaching and learning.  Annually, they support the Teacher Grant program and the Lillie F. Fitzgerald Excellence in Teaching Award. 

Beginning in 2019, Dr. and Mrs. Fitzgerald desire to further invoke transformational teaching, instruction and learning through the Fitzgerald Innovation Award.  This Award, funded by the Fitzgerald Family Foundation, seeks to embolden and inspire teachers and administrators in their quest for significant positive change through innovative academic design.
