Twenty-one students from Cincinnati Public Schools in grades 5 through 12 were honored during the second annual Student Recognition and Book Scholarship Awards program held on January 31, 2015, at Woodward Career Technical High School. This year's theme was "Reclaiming the Promise: Inspiring Students of African Descent for Success in Academics, Citizenship and Community Service." The awards were given by the Greater Cincinnati Alliance of Black School Educators (GCABSE), the local affiliate of the National Association of Black School Educators.

Each award-winning student was recommended for recognition by his/her teacher, a GCABSE member or other school professional. The award included a certificate named after a black history legend, a book, a $25 gift card and other gifts courtesy of the national organization.

Congratulations to the following recipients:
