For Immediate Release

Washington D.C. – Congressman Gary Palmer (R-AL) congratulates Crestline Elementary School in Mountain Brook and Shades Cahaba Elementary School in Homewood, for being recognized today by the Department of Education as National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2015.

“I am very pleased that Crestline Elementary and Shades Cahaba Elementary were recognized for their excellence and I congratulate the faculty and administration on their exceptional service to their students,” Palmer said.  “The real reward, however, will be the achievements of their students in their lives going forward.” 

The National Blue Ribbon Schools program was created in 1982 to honor schools which have achieved high levels of performance or made significant improvements in closing the achievement gap in schools where at least 40% of the student population is classified as disadvantaged.  Three additional schools in Alabama were also recognized.
