The Edye Miller Distinguished Service Award is designed to recognize and express appreciation to MCAAP/MCBOA members who have effectively provided distinguished service to MCAAP over time and made exemplary contributions to the association. It is also designed to inspire other members to actively support MCAAP and the professional growth of all members. 

 

This award was established by the MCAAP Board of Directors and funded by MCAAP’s former executive director, Edye Miller, upon her retirement in 2017. The recipient receives a cash award of $2,000 presented in June. In addition, the deserving member’s name will be engraved in a special commendation plaque displayed in the MCAAP office.

 

A nominee for this award shall have made an impact on the association through

  • support through distinguished voluntary service over time,

  • commitment to the professional growth of members and/or to the profession of educational leadership on behalf of the association,

  • exemplary contributions to the mission of the association, and

· Current voting member of MCAAP/MCBOA, and

· Five years of continuous and recent voting membership in MCAAP/MCBOA, and
