Wayne Carle Awards

In 1940 a group of grubby 10 year old campers, on their way back from a week in the mountains, could hardly wait for their promised swim at the local country club. They lined up eagerly at the entrance to the fenced club and began to enter. One of the campers Mary Ota, an Asian American, was stopped and told she could not enter. Without saying a word, her fellow campers all turned around and got back on the bus, their eyes filled with tears at the affront to their friend. One of those campers was ten year old Wayne Carle. Since that incident so many years ago, Dr. Wayne Carle, former Superintendent of Jeffco Schools, has remained devoted to promoting cultural understanding and respect. His impetus for this work generated the Wayne Carle Awards for Outstanding Contributions to Diversity and Equity in Jefferson County Public Schools.
