Dev Bhavsar, Parthenon education intern, won the Past President's Award and Award of Excellence for his 31 minute video, The History of the Parthenon. The Past President's Award is selected from Award of Excellence recipients for all categories in the current year. From that group, five nominees are selected, and the past presidents of TAM vote on the "best of the best." We are so proud of the Parthenon staff and Dev Bhavsar for their excellent work!
