CCAE South Coast Awards: Nominations Open!
The following awards will be presented at the 2019 CCAE South Coast Section Fall Conference. Nominate someone for a CCAE South Coast Section Award today!
ALL NOMINATION SUBMISSIONS DUE:
FRI, OCT 11, 2019, 5:00 PM
SPECIAL RECOGNITION AWARD • SUBMIT NOMINATION >
From time to time a situation presents itself when it would be appropriate to recognize a particular individual, but the accomplishments of that individual do not meet the criteria of the four awards listed. The Special Recognition Award is provided to fill that void. Past recipients have been adult educators, elected officials, and community leaders. The 2005 awardee, Cleve Pell, is a good example of someone who is eligible for this award. Mr. Pell was Director of a large adult school program and made many significant contributions to his school and to Adult Education in general. Since he was never directly or actively involved in CCAE, he was not eligible for the Kirk McKeever Award. However, as the Director of his adult school, he always attended CCAE conferences. He funded, and in fact encouraged his staff to attend, participate and present at conferences, also supporting members of his chapter to serve in key CCAE leadership roles.
KIRK MCKEEVER AWARD • SUBMIT NOMINATION >
The Kirk McKeever Award gives recognition to an educator who has made significant contributions over many years to adult education at the chapter/school, South Coast Section/Southern California, and state levels of adult education and/or CCAE.
JO SMITH AWARD • SUBMIT NOMINATION >
Nominations for the Jo Smith 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 South Coast Section. The nominee may come from education (other than adult education), business, politics, a social agency or as a volunteer from the community.
CCAE EXCELLENCE IN SUPPORT SERVICES • SUBMIT NOMINATION >
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.
CCAE EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING AWARD • SUBMIT NOMINATION >
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.
Don’t forget! The deadline for all nomination submissions is Fri, Oct 11, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.
November 22-23 will be here soon. We hope you will, too!
