The School of Leadership and Education Sciences (SOLES) at the University of San Diego is calling for nominations by community members for those whose careers as educations, counselors, advocates, administrators, elected officials, and community leaders are deemed extraordinary and outstanding in their contributions to the field of education.

Organized by SOLES, Remarkable Leaders in Education serves as an annual opportunity to honor legendary contributions to the field of education made by individuals from San Diego and Imperial counties.

As a lasting tribute to the inductees’ achievements, their stories and portraits are permanently displayed at Mother Rosalie Hill Hall. The stories of the Remarkable Leaders in Education serve as an inspiration to SOLES faculty, staff, students and alumni and a reminder of the importance of service, innovation and vision in the field of education.
