The University of Chicago created and chose the recipients of The Stand Up/Stand Award. Horace Mann was nominated by the parents of a kindergartener because the teachers, administrators and the school nurses have created and implemented a plan that provides all the necessary care, but does not disrupt the educational experience of their students. This is a great photo opportunity to get state representatives and senators with the family, teachers and school officials who have made this law a success.
