Nominations are currently being accepted for the 2023 California Adult Education Students Succeed program. Each year, OTAN recognizes adult learners who are successful as a result of the education received at adult education agencies. They inspire and embody a resilient spirit, overcome difficult challenges, contribute within their own communities, and improve their own circumstances. Many past nominated people and their stories are posted on our Students Succeed Website. These serve to inspire and encourage us all.

Please consider nominating a deserving adult education learner. The top four highest scoring nominees will be honored at the CAEP Summit in October and ACSA’s Leadership Summit in November. The deadline to submit is Monday, April 1, 2023.
