On February 5, 2014, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation announced the first Allen Distinguished Educators (ADE). Not only are these the first awards from this foundation to recognize achievement specifically in education, but they are also one of the first foundation awards to recognize programs beyond the Pacific Northwest.
Gever was selected as one of the 7 educators in this first cohort, all chosen for their “entrepreneurial mindset to rethink education” (per Jody Allen, co-founder and president of The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation).
You can read more about all the ADEs on the PGAFF website.
There was also coverage on SFGate.
