DOMINICK S. GAGLIARDI EXEMPLARY MEMBER AWARD • NOMINATE >

From time to time a situation presents itself when it would be appropriate to recognize a particular individual, for the accomplishments of exemplary support for the preservation and continuation of Adult Education. The Dominick S. Gagliardi Exemplary Member Award is provided to fill that accomplishment.

A candidate for this award may be nominated by a chapter president, school administrator, South Coast Section Board Member, or a past South Coast Section President. The nomination shall consist of a 1-3 page narrative describing the nominee’s contributions to Adult Education and to CCAE. The Election Committee will determine the worthiness of the nomination on subjective measures, and the SCS Executive Board must also approve the selection.

MICHAEL J. GALLO AWARD • NOMINATE >

Nominations for the Michael J. Gallo Award should be for individuals who are not a part of the adult education family, but someone outside of adult education who has made significant contributions to an individual adult school or schools or to the Southern Section. The nominee may come from education (other than adult education,) business, politics, a social agency or as a volunteer from the community.

Minimum qualifications for nominees:

  1. Strong support of an individual adult school over a period of three or more years.

  2. Ongoing general support of adult education in a manner that enhances the status of adult education.

Nominator must be a current member of CCAE and the Southern Section. Nominator may be a chapter president, school administrator, or past or present section officer.

Nominations must be submitted in writing to the committee and include comprehensive information about the nominee to enable the committee to verify the eligibility of the candidate and score the application.

The Awards Committee will determine eligibility and scoring based on the following criteria:

  • Exceptional contributions to an adult education program, to adult education in general, or to CCAE at the chapter, section and/or state level over a number of years, and without receiving any personal benefit, that has resulted in extra benefits to students, staff, school(s) and/or adult education. (Maximum – 100 points)

  • Both the chapter president and the principal/director/administrator must sign the nomination cover sheet if the nomination arises from a chapter or individual adult school, or by the section president if the nomination arises from a section representative.

  • Nominees selected for the award should be present at the Fall Conference Dinner to receive the award, and a representative from the chapter or section should attend to escort the award winner.

  • Decisions by the Awards Committee are final.

EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING AWARD • NOMINATE >

Every day, gifted teachers reach out and touch their students’ hearts and souls. Adult education teachers truly understand that learning is life-long, and they give their expertise to anyone with a thirst for knowledge.

Eligibility: The nominee is a teacher with five or more years of experience in teaching adults and who is recognized as a master teacher. CCAE membership for at least three years, including the current year, is required. Each chapter may select one candidate who shall automatically be recognized as the chapter's award recipient at the Fall Conference. Nominees are to be approved by chapter boards.

EXCELLENCE IN SUPPORT SERVICES AWARD • NOMINATE >

The Excellence in Support Services Award recognizes outstanding service to CCAE at the chapter, section, or state levels by a classified employee.

All of our award recipients are truly role models for everyone who is a part of the Adult Education Community. They are often the first person a student meets at the adult school, and the care and attention each person is greeted with are what makes these individuals truly outstanding in their field.

Eligibility: The nominee must be employed in classified status at an adult education program for at least three years and a member of CCAE for at least three years, including the current year. Each chapter may select one candidate who shall automatically be recognized as the chapter's award recipient at the Fall Conference. Nominees are to be approved by chapter boards.
