The ELL Foundation Recognition Breakfast is the foundation's annual fundraiser event held in February. Every year, the foundation invites donors, students, educators, and friends from the community to gather for a meal to celebrate the accomplishments of bright ELL students battling adversities, caring and dedicated educators, and organizations that have made a significant difference in the community. 

In every recognition breakfast, the Foundation honors the Students of the Year, Educator of the Year, Tutor of the Year and the Make a Difference Award.  Below are a few of the honorees from prior years:
