Gerald Selitzer, Director of the American School of Puerto Vallarta, was recently honored by being inducted into the Hall of Fame of the prestigious international organization known as AAIE (Association for the Advancement of International Education) on Friday, February 11, 2011 in San Francisco, California.
AAIE is the premier international education association in the United States and abroad. It is a diverse, global organization that provides a forum for the discussion and exchange of ideas, whose mission is to inspire and support international educational leaders to achieve excellence and innovation in education by creating a dynamic, global community.
Selitzer was bestowed the award for his countless contributions to the field of international education and for his years of service in the academic community. He is the founding Director of the American School of Puerto Vallarta and through years of hard work, he has helped mold this institution into one of the foremost educational organizations in Mexico. It is the quality of education that is available at ASPV that was the basis for the AAIE recognition.
Among the many accomplishments he has brought to ASPV has been U.S. accreditation, making his school the only accredited institution on the west coast of México. Furthermore, he was the first school director outside of Mexico City to sign an agreement with the National University of Mexico to offer the UNAM program to his students. Over the last twenty four years he has sent well over five hundred young men and women on to prestigious Universities in the United States, Mexico and beyond. It should be noted that many of these students enjoyed substantial scholarships and today are contributing to create a better world for all of us.
