The North Idaho Family Group received the Cd’A Chamber of Commerce A+ Award for Education in September 2018.
The A+ Award recognizes organizations and businesses who support education. NIFG was nominated by Coeur d’Alene Public Schools: “At Coeur d’Alene Public Schools we especially appreciate the efforts of Executive Director, Shelly Zollman. Examples include her posts and shares on Facebook about current news and opportunities; the “Group Scoop” electronic newsletter with information about a wide range of family-relevant fundraising and community events; her contributions to the Education Information Center’s website which offers educational resources for parents and students; her work with the North Idaho Family Magazine and its variety of informative articles, and her enthusiasm and contributions to Family Day at the Park, an event where over 5,000 people were able to interact with various community agencies, including our Coeur d’Alene Public Schools teachers and staff.
Shelly Zollman’s passion for connecting partners and communicating opportunities brings our schools and greater North Idaho communities together for the benefit of so many families.”
