Submission From David Karem, chairman, Kentucky Board of Education

The Kentucky Board of Education is proud to announce the eighth annual Dr. Samuel Robinson Award. This award will be given to a Kentuckian or a Kentucky organization that has exhibited leadership, commitment and service to equity and opportunity in education for all Kentucky children.

Dr. Robinson served on the Kentucky Board of Education from 1991 until 2004 and provided magnificent commitment, service and leadership as an advocate for all children. As his colleagues, the board knows firsthand of his passion for equity and opportunity in education.

The board invites your nomination(s) on the attached form. Because nominations may come from both organizations and individuals, additional copies of the form may be made and distributed throughout your membership/board. Notice that in addition to completing the nomination form, a brief narrative of 500 words or less must be submitted to me no later than Sept. 9, describing how the person or organization has exhibited leadership, commitment and service to equity and opportunity in education for all Kentucky children at the school, community and/or state levels.

Thank you for your assistance in identifying and recognizing candidates/organizations that exemplify the characteristics of Dr. Samuel Robinson in ensuring equity and opportunity for all children in education.
