Holly Jack Award

Who is eligible: Nominees must be local district employees (superintendent’s secretary, superintendent’s administrative assistant, or school board recording secretary) that have performed the duties of a board secretary for a minimum of five years.

Created in 2009, the Holly Jack Outstanding Service Award honors the memory of longtime IASB administrative assistant, Holly Jack. The purpose of the award is both to honor Holly’s contribution and to recognize the extraordinary work and service provided by administrative professionals who assist their local boards of education.

In order to qualify for the recognition, nominees must demonstrate characteristics that Holly Jack found essential in her work with local school districts. Some of these qualifications include a constant desire for self-improvement, passion for public education work, dedication toward improving the quality of life for others and the quality of education in the community, independent problem solving abilities, and innovation and imagination within the work environment.

The award is presented annually at the Joint Annual Conference in Chicago.
