Sallie Chastain Presented ACEA 2016 Charles Stewart Mott Award
Sallie Chastain was presented the ACEA 2016 Charles Stewart Mott Award at the annual Alabama Community Education Association meeting in Huntsville Feb. 26, 2016. This is the highest award made by ACEA in memory of the person who started community education in Flint, Michigan in the 1930’s. Charles Stewart Mott, who once stated “Let us be known by our deeds,” left a legacy far greater than the General Motors Corporation he helped found. The Mott Foundation continues to this day to be a national and international leader in promoting democratic ideals, which include community education, grass-roots citizen participation, and global awareness of man and his close relationship to the good earth.
