There is still time to submit nominations for IASB’s Holly Jack Outstanding Service Award for 2019. Districts are encouraged to recommend board or district secretaries who go above and beyond to serve staff, school board, community, and students.

Eligible nominees must be a district employee (superintendent’s secretary, superintendent’s administrative assistant, school board recording secretary, etc.) who has performed the duties of the board secretary for a minimum of five years.

The nomination form, with the signatures of the superintendent and board president, must be submitted by September 30. Letters of support from individuals, inside or outside the district, may be included but are limited to five or fewer.

The Holly Jack Award was created to honor the memory of long-time IASB employee Holly Jack, who worked as a field services administrative assistant and was instrumental in developing the secretaries’ training offered at the Joint Annual Conference. The honorary award will be presented in November at the Conference in Chicago during the Administrative Professionals’ Program.
