Here at ESB we support honoring those who’ve served their community. That is why we are sponsoring the 2012 Sand in My Shoes Award hosted by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce. A symbol of commitment to the community, this year’s award will be presented to Eduardo H. Padrón, Ph.D., who has served as president of Miami Dade College since 1995.
Part of the South Florida community for decades, this is not the first time he’s being recognized. Among his many accolades is the 2011 Carnegie Corporation Centennial Academic Leadership Award. He was also listed as one of the eight most influential college leaders by The Washington Post in 2011 and one of the ten best college presidents by Time Magazine in 2009.
Held at Jungle Island on February 28th, 2012, the evening will include a cocktail reception, dinner and, of course, the award presentation.
We want to know…
Which community leaders do you look up to?
