Congratulations to MSA-CESS President Henry G. Cram, Ed.D., for being this year’s recipient of the Walid Abushakra Award for Impact on International Education.
Presented annually by Esol Education, a network of international schools, the award is given to distinguished heads of school, representatives of the U.S. Department of State and other leaders in international education. The Walid Abushakra Award is named for the chairman and superintendent of Esol Education.
“Dr. Cram embodies the values we ascribe to at Esol Education, including inclusivity and cultural awareness, and has dedicated his career to improving student outcomes in the U.S. and throughout the world,” said Abushakra. “We are grateful for his support of Esol Education in our pursuit of continuous growth and improvement.”
In addition, Esol Education will contribute $5,000 to Brookdale Community College, in Lincroft, N.J., where Cram is a member of the Board of Trustees. The funds will be used to establish a scholarship for students interested in working in the field of international education.
