The Serbian Philanthropic Association from New York gave recognition to Vladimir Prelovac and the Association "Živojin Mišić" for their contribution to the development of philanthropy in Serbia!
According to the Serbian Philanthropic Association, the association "Živojin Mišić" deserved this recognition because it has been awarding exceptional teachers in Serbia for seven years in a row through the project The Best Educators in Serbia.
The Serbian Philanthropic Association points out:
"It is not an exaggeration to say that teachers, who build self-confidence in young people, inspire them to reach for their dreams and give them tools for success, truly build entire societies.
For seven years, the Association "Živojin Mišić" has been finding innovative, proactive, and inspiring primary and secondary school teachers in Serbia. The Association has been rewarding them financially, showing respect for the profession, and inspiring teachers to achieve the best in the classroom. When we considered the nominations for this year's award, the Association "Živojin Mišić" stood out with great optimism, careful focus on the skills needed for success in today's world that is constantly changing and a huge impact on the most significant segment of the population - young people. Congratulations to Mr. Prelovac and the Association "Živojin Mišić" on this award."
