Nov. 1 is the deadline for nominations for three special recognition to be made during the 2014 KSBA Annual Conference. Those are:
· F. L. Dupree Outstanding Superintendent Award
· Warren Proudfoot Outstanding School Board Member Award
· KSBA Friend of Education Award
Dupree Superintendent Award
2014 will see the 44th annual presentation of the Dupree Award by KSBA and the family of the late F. L. Dupree, a London Independent school board member and public education advocate. Superintendents who have been in their current post since July 1, 2009 may be nominated. Two panels of past Dupree recipients are the judges – the first screening all nominees and recommending a group of finalists whose districts are then permitted to submit expanded information that is considered by a different panel of Dupree honorees.
Proudfoot School Board Member Award
Co-sponsored by the Kentucky PTA and KSBA, this honor is open to any current board member who has at least five years’ service. The 2014 recipient will be the 23rd honoree in memory of the late Dr. Proudfoot, a former KSBA president and Rowan County school board member. Reminder: Nominations for the Proudfoot award are to be mailed to the Kentucky PTA and the selection is made by that organization’s board of directors.
Friend of Education Award
The 25th KSBA Friend of Education Award will go to an individual, an organization, a business or a corporation in recognition of support for public education in a community or across the state. Board members and superintendents may not be nominated for this recognition and a nomination may not be made by any district that has had a nominee chosen for the award in the past decade. Selection is by a statewide panel.
All forms and additional information is available on the KSBA website here http://www.ksba.org/AnnualConferenceEducationAwards.aspx.
