Cambridge Education’s Dr. Adrian B. Mims Sr. awarded 2016 Amtrak Pioneer Award

Cambridge Education’s Dr. Adrian B. Mims Sr. has been awarded a 2016 Amtrak Pioneer Award for his outstanding contribution to improving the lives of adolescents across Boston, USA. In celebration of Black History Month, the award was created to honor African-Americans who are pioneers in their own right and acknowledges their work to uplift their communities.

Adrian pioneered The Calculus Project to address the lack of students of color and low-income students participating in advanced math classes. The Calculus Project has demonstrated that it can reverse this trend and is now expanding to include districts from Massachusetts, Florida and New York.

Cambridge Education LLC, a leading provider of education services in the United States, has led projects in over 6,500 schools in over 570 districts across 38 states since 2002. Its US team consists of over 30 full-time dedicated professionals who draw on the expertise of the company's international network of staff to deliver projects that span the education sector. The firm’s professional staff are all highly accomplished educational leaders and recognized experts in the fields of diagnostic review, school improvement, leadership development, instructional design, student achievement and change management.

Majid Haquani, president of Cambridge Education LLC, said: “This is a well-deserved award for Adrian who has a passion and willingness to expand access to educational opportunities to underprivileged students. His knowledge and ingenuity gives him and others the belief they can accomplish real change.”

Adrian’s work has been recognized previously when he was inducted into the Minority Student Achievement Network’s Promising Practices Clearinghouse in 2011. He has also been a recipient of the Asa G. Hilliard Models of Success award for his commitment to closing the achievement gap for African-Americans in mathematics and the Dr. Carlene Riccelli Assembly Leadership Award, which recognizes length, breadth and quality of service.
