Do you know someone who is bursting with Highland Pride? Do you know of an employee or community member who spends his or her spare time volunteering in the Highland School District? Do you know someone who does a lot for Highland students, but never asks for anything in return? Nominate that individual for the 2017 Highland Pride Award!
Each school year, the Highland Board of Education recognizes individuals whose work for the schools exemplifies an extraordinary spirit of pride. Highland Pride Awards will be given to no more than two deserving nominees (one to a community member and one to a Highland employee) at the May 15, 2017, Board of Education meeting held at Highland High School. A reception will follow for family and friends.
The Pride Committee is now accepting nominations of deserving individuals to receive this year’s award. Please note that awards are NOT required annually. If the voting committee deems that none of the candidates are qualified, then NO awards will be given that year. If only one candidate is qualified to receive the award, then only one will be presented. Letters of nomination must include the following information:
1. Name, address and phone number of the nominee (must be at least 18 years of age)
2. Reason(s) for the nomination, including specific examples, dates, years of service and other information that would prove the nominee worthy of consideration for the award.
3. Nominations should stress the involvement in the Highland Schools community as the highest criteria for the award. Nominees must have committed extensive time and efforts to the schools and/or the Highland community.
Nominations that do not include this information will not be considered. Submit letters of nomination to: Dawn Marzano, Director of Communications, Highland Local Schools, 3880 Ridge Road, Medina, OH 44256, or email nominations to: firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions, please call 330-239-1901, ext. 1261.
Nominations are due by Friday, March 31, 2017.
