Nominees must be school district employees (superintendent’s secretary, superintendent’s administrative assistant, school board recording secretary) who have performed the duties of the board secretary for a minimum of five years.
 
The award is in memory of long-time IASB employee Holly Jack, who worked as a Field Services administrative assistant and was instrumental in developing training for administrative professionals at the Joint Annual Conference.
 
Nominees for the award should demonstrate characteristics similar to those exhibited by Holly Jack in her work with school districts. Qualifications include a constant desire for self-improvement, passion for work and public education, dedication toward improving the quality of life and quality of education for those in the community, independent problem-solving abilities, innovation within the work environment, and a drive to empower and equip colleagues with knowledge allowing them to reach their full potential.
 
The deadline for submitting all related nomination materials is September 30.  Nomination forms must be signed by the superintendent and the board president. The application can be found on the Holly Jack Award webpage.
