We all know the world of difference that Education Support Professionals make every day in the lives of students. Here’s your chance to shout from the rooftop about the greatness of para-educators, clerical staff, food services workers, custodians, and transportation employees in your district.
Nominations are due this month for the Leon A. Brunner Award, which recognizes Michigan’s ESP who have exhibited a high degree of commitment and dedication to their union while advocating for ESP member issues and promotion of ESP careers.
If you know of an Education Support Professional (member in good standing) who has done outstanding work, who has gone the extra mile, who has made a sufficient contribution to their profession and is deserving of being recognized for their efforts – please complete the Leon Brunner nomination form at www.mea.org/leon-brunner-award.
Nominators are asked to include a brief biographical sketch of the nominee and to list the activities this person has been involved with to benefit Education Support Professionals.
Other information helpful to the nomination review committee include a list of awards or letters of commendation received from work-related sources, such as UniServ, local leaders, and school district administration.
The deadline for nominations is Feb. 24. Completed nomination forms can be sent to Monica Ritchie via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to her attention at 517-366-4048.
