Superintendent of Public Instruction
|SUBJECT:||Recognition of the Outstanding Achievement by Students, Faculty, and Staff|
Kirk T. Schroder, President of the Board of Education, is requesting your help to identify students, faculty, staff members, or school organizations that have distinguished themselves, their school, and their community by receiving state, regional, or national awards or honors. These may be honors bestowed by academic groups, civic organizations, professional societies, or any other entity you deem worthy of recognition by the Board of Education. At each of its upcoming monthly meetings, the board would like to honor those whose hard work and dedication have been recognized by professional organizations, civic groups, academic societies, or other entities. Mr. Schroder, on behalf of the board, will write a letter of congratulations, or, if you feel special recognition is warranted, the board may invite the recipient(s) to be present at a board meeting to receive recognition in person. In this way, the members of the state board can acknowledge the many outstanding students and teachers who bring honor to our schools and communities. If, at any point now or in the future, you know of students, student organizations, and staff members in your division who have received a state, regional, or national award, or a special community recognition, please let us know. For your convenience, we have attached a form that you may want to distribute to your staff, asking that they assist in identifying such individuals and organizations. Margaret Roberts at the Department of Education is our contact for this effort. Please call 804/225-2775 if you have any questions. Thank you for your help with this important undertaking. PDS/mnr Attachment: A hard copy of this memo and its attach- ment will be sent to the superintendent's office.
