The Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development (PHENND) will award Saint Joseph’s University and Samuel Gompers School a runner-up prize for the 2019 Phillip B. Lindy Award for Excellence in K-16 Partnerships. The Lindy Award aims to recognize a collaborative partnership between at least one K-12 school and one university. This award will be given to the entire partnership, not an individual. Phil Lindy valued collaboration and communication among diverse stakeholders in order to maximize impact. There are approximately 40 Gompers-SJU programs across 20 University departments. Both institutions will receive a total prize of $500 and will be presented the award on Friday, May 31, at the School District of Philadelphia.
