Prince George’s County Council Member Andrea C. Harrison (D) – District 5, praised Kenmoor Middle School for recognition as one of five schools selected statewide and the only school from Prince George’s County to receive Maryland’s Excellence in Gifted and Talented Education (EGATE) award.
“I proudly applaud the Kenmoor Middle School students, faculty, and staff for accomplishing such a significant achievement.” said Council Member Harrison. “This recognition is a testament to the school’s commitment to high standards in education and exemplary leadership in our Prince George’s County Public Schools.”
The Maryland State Advisory Council on Gifted and Talented Education, whose state mission is to encourage and support the education of students who are identified as gifted and talented in accordance with the Annotated Code of Maryland and national standards for gifted programming, selected the five schools following a review of EGATE applications from across the state.
Kenmore Middle School, located in Landover, was selected for the EGATE school award following an application process that determined the school’s gifted and talented program met the Maryland Criteria for Excellence: Gifted and Talented Education Program Guidelines. Council Member Harrison will present the school with a Proclamation at an upcoming Council session.
