Nominations open for Dupree Outstanding Superintendent, Proudfoot Outstanding School Board Member, KSBA Friend of Education

KSBA invites nominations of outstanding education leaders and advocates from your community for recognition during the association’s 81st annual conference, Feb. 24–26, 2017 in Louisville.

The following recognitions are now open for submission of nominations. (Forms are available here):

KSBA Friend of Education Award

This will mark the 28th presentation of the KSBA Friend of Education Award. One award will be presented to an individual, an organization, a business or a corporation in recognition of support for public education in their home community as well as across the state. Board members and superintendents may not be nominated for this recognition. Nominations may come from any district that has not had a nominee selected for the award in 10 years. This selection will be made by the KSBA Board of Directors.

F. L. Dupree Outstanding Superintendent Award

KSBA and the family of the late F.L. Dupree, a local school board member and public education advocate, jointly present this honor. To be eligible, a superintendent must have held the current position since July 1, 2011, and be serving in the post at the time of the award presentation. Nominations are screened by a panel of Dupree past recipients, and then a final selection is made by a different panel of Dupree honorees.

Warren Proudfoot Outstanding School Board Member Award

This tribute is co-sponsored by the Kentucky PTA and KSBA. Nomination eligibility is open to any current board member with at least five years’ service and will be serving at the time of the award presentation. This marks the 26th award presented in memory of the late Dr. Proudfoot, a former KSBA president and Rowan County school board member. Nominations for this award go to the Kentucky PTA and the selection is made by that organization’s board of directors.

The nomination deadline for the Warren Proudfoot Outstanding School Board Member award is Nov. 1; please send to the Kentucky PTA, 148 Consumer Lane, Frankfort 40601. (Must be mailed; fax or email submissions not accepted.)

The nomination deadline for the KSBA Friend of Education and F. L. Dupree Outstanding Superintendent awards is Nov. 15 and must be sent to KSBA, 260 Democrat Drive, Frankfort 40601.
