The Award of Achievement is given to school board members in recognition of their commitment to training and leadership on their boards of education as well as regional and statewide activities. Of the more than 3,000 school board members in Ohio, fewer than 100 earn the award each year.
The awards were presented at the OSBA Southwest Region Spring Conference in Cincinnati.
