Still time to submit nominations for 2017 Holly Jack Award

IASB Executive Director Roger Eddy
presented the award to 2016
winner, Karen Vota of Coal City.

Time is running out to submit applications for IASB’s 2017 Holly Jack Outstanding Service Award. Districts across the state are encouraged to nominate board or district secretaries who go above and beyond expectations to serve the staff, school board, community, and students.

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

The nomination form needs to be signed by the superintendent and the board president. Letters of support from individuals, either inside or outside the district, may be submitted with the form, but are limited to no more than five. The deadline for submitting all related nomination materials is Sep. 30. 

The recognition 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 award will be presented in November at the Joint Annual Conference in Chicago during the Administrative Professionals’ Program (formerly titled the Secretaries’ Program).
