Scott Shanklin-Peterson Surprise ELE Award

The Scott Shanklin-Peterson Surprise ELE award is in honor of one of ECM's Founders and a former board chair who invested years of leadership and inspiration to build ECM into what it is today.  Upon her retirement as board chair in 2019, the ECM board designated this annual award in her honor.  The Scott Shanklin-Peterson Surprise ELE award is for any school not currently experiencing ECM programs who wants to build an arts program and experience arts integration. Schools are selected based on the number of donations received.
