Stiepleman also accepted MU's Martin Luther King Jr. Award for 2010, on behalf of the school, at a ceremony last month, as well as at a meeting last week of the Columbia School Board.

West Boulevard Elementary received the award as a part of the Chancellor's Diversity Initiative program. The award is given to schools that demonstrate King's community involvement.

Noor Azizan-Gardner, director of diversity programming and professional development at MU, said the school was chosen because of its work closing academic achievement gaps among students.
