The 15th Annual Ahead of the Class Excellence in Education was recently held on April 14th, 2016 at the VMAC. 

The Renton Chamber of Commerce recognizes all the hard work and time our teachers dedicates to our children. Without them we would be unable to prosper and thrive as a community. Each award symbolizes the appreciation the City of Renton has for our teachers in hopes of continuing the great work they do. They are an inspiration to our children, who will one day be our leaders of the community. Once again, thank you for your hard work and effort! 

The Renton Chamber of Commerce congratulates all finalists and nominees.
