Congratulations to the Winners of OAESA's Recognition Awards Program for 2020 and 2021
An Update on OAESA's 2020 and 2021 Recognition Awards Program
School closures due to COVID-19 have caused many disruptions and demands for adaptation, including the abrupt halt to the OAESA Recognition Awards Process. In March, we were in the middle of the visitation stage of our process with some of the nominees already visited, and others not. When it became apparent that no school visits would be allowed, the OAESA Board of Directors, upon advice from me and the OAESA Recognition Service Team, made this generous and supportive decision:
- There were 17 schools who were in the visitation stage for the Hall of Fame Award.
- The eight schools who were visited before March 13, 2020 will be the 2020 Hall of Fame award winners and the other nine schools will be the 2021 Hall of Fame winners.
- The two finalists for the National Distinguished Principal award will each be selected; one named the 2020 winner and the other, our 2021 winner.
- Additionally, our already selected secretary of the year will be the 2020 winner.
We hope that all can be honored in person at the Professional Conference and Trade Show here in Columbus June 16-18, 2021. Health and safety factors permitting, we will commence a new awards process beginning in the fall of 2021. We look forward to honoring the 2020 and 2021 winners this year, as well as all of the great work our members are doing during this uncertain time. Congratulations to all honorees!
