ASCD Champion in Education Chanel Gaither is being recognized by the University of Delaware College of Education & Human Development for her career work in championing quality education for black scholars.

Chanel is the president and founder of Minorities Achieving College Success (MACS), a nonprofit organization that assists first-generation international students with college admission, and Ascend Legacy Academy, an innovative boarding school for Black, male high schoolers in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.

The University shares:

"Gaither’s applied research in the Ed.D. in Educational Leadership program complements her work at Ascend Legacy Academy. Her education leadership portfolio, the capstone project for this doctoral program, will document the experiences of instructional leaders and the students of historically Black boarding schools.

Among other goals, this work will identify distinctive features of teaching, leading and the school community at historically Black boarding schools. Gaither will also offer a pedagogical framework for curricula at these schools and a framework for school leadership."
