The BCDRC and the San Antonio Bar Foundation recognize the outstanding efforts of Ms. Apearl Gonzalez with the support of the Administrative Team at Oak Crest Elementary School. Ms. Gonzalez was selected out of 111 school sponsors to receive the 2018-2019 Peer Mediation Sponsor of the Year Award! We would like to recognize Ms. Gonzalez for sustaining a successful peer mediation program that regularly practices peaceful conflict resolution.
It is Ms. Gonzalez's second year to sponsor student mediators at Oak Crest Elementary and she reported the peer mediators are even modeling their skills learned in training to resolve disputes on the playground! Thank you for your dedication to building and repairing relationships at your campus and impacting the community. Congratulations!
