Several years ago, the ACE of Florida Board of Directors created the ACE President’s Award. The bestowing of the President’s Award is the exclusive privilege of the ACE President. It is given annually to an individual who has gone above and beyond for ACE and for adult education. It represents the mission and values of ACE of Florida in promoting adult education across our state and nation. During the 2018 ACE Conference, current ACE of Florida President, Maria Miranda, recognized Jeff Arnott with the Presidents Award. He is a virtual “energizer Bunny” when it comes to the Adult Ed programs he is responsible for and for ACE of Florida. Jeff is described as innovative, a salesman, a promoter, a teacher, a caring administrator and someone who lives and breathes adult education 24/7. A Florida superintendent described him as “a passionate, energetic leader who strives to serve students of all ages and from all walks of life. He has dedicated his career to helping the underserved achieve their fullest potential through the power of education. He is a relentless advocate for both young people and adults.” There is no one more passionate and who promotes adult education more than Jeff, in fact, he is the first person in the 25-year history of ACE of Florida to represent Florida and the southeastern United States on the COABE National Board. It was an honor and privilege for Maria to recognize Jeff as the 2018 recipient of the ACE of Florida President’s Award.
