Nominations for the 2022 Holly Jack Outstanding Service Award are due September 30. Eligible nominees must be a district employee (superintendent’s secretary, superintendent’s administrative assistant, or school board recording secretary) who has performed the duties of the board secretary for a minimum of five years.
The nomination form must include the signatures of the superintendent and board president. Letters of support from individuals may also 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 IASB training offered to district secretaries.

In order to qualify for the recognition nominees must exhibit characteristics that Holly Jack found essential while working with educational leaders. These qualities 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 honorary award will be presented on November 18 during the Administrative Professionals’ Program at the Joint Annual Conference in Chicago.
