Two Little Miami Board of Education members were recently given awards of achievement for their service to the community.
Bobbie Grice and Michael Cremeans were presented with the Ohio School Boards Associations’ Master Board Member Awards and Awards of Achievement at one of the association’s spring region conferences last month.
The Award of Achievement is given to school board members in recognition of their commitment to training and leadership activities on their boards of education and region as well as statewide OSBA activities.
Grice received a Master Board Member Award, her third Award of Achievement and her 20-year service recognition. Cremeans was also awarded his Master Board Member Award and his first Award of Achievement.
The Master Board Member Award is a lifetime achievement award given by the OSBA. Before being considered for the honor, an Ohio public school board member must complete numerous professional development workshops and activities. Leadership on school boards or educational service center governing boards, active involvement in student leadership and other statewide OSBA activities are but a few of the requirements considered in bestowing the Master Board Member designation.
Grice is in her 20th year of service on the Little Miami Board of Education and Cremeans is in his 17th.
