The Sun Prairie Business and Education Partnership (BEP) started in 1989 with a small budget and one or two projects each year. Since then, every project that BEP has sponsored has come from a teacher/administrator or business member who saw a need to get the business community involved in the schools. Over the past 30+ years, the SPBEP has grown from a few school-to-business partnerships to a wide variety of programs serving all students in all levels of the Sun Prairie Area.
Two Awards Given at the Annual Meeting!
In April at the annual meeting, Colony Brands was honored with the 2017-2018 BEP Distinguished Business Recognition Award for their work with BEP programs. Karen Bailey, retired from the Bank of Sun Prairie, was honored with the 2017-2018 BEP Distinguished Individual Recognition Award for her work with BEP programs throughout her time at the Bank of Sun Prairie and her continued dedication to the group in her retirement. Both Colony Brands and Karen Bailey have gone above and beyond, setting positive examples of what it looks like to tie our community businesses with our schools, “preparing and supporting today’s students for tomorrow’s workforce.
