NEOEA will seek to recognize a Friend of Education. NEOEA’s members and local affiliates are encouraged to nominate individuals and/or organizations who would be worthy recipients of this honor. If a Friend of Education is selected, NEOEA Representative Assembly delegates will recognize the honoree at the spring Representative Assembly.
The North Eastern Ohio Education Association Friend of Education Award recognizes a person and/or organization whose leadership, actions, and support have contributed to the improvement of public education for a broad cross-section of northeastern Ohio.
NEOEA’s Friend of Education Award may be bestowed upon any person or organization whose leadership, actions, and support have proven that person or organization to be a true friend of education, educators, or students in northeastern Ohio.
Any member of NEOEA or any local affiliate of NEOEA may nominate an individual or organization for the Friend of Education Award.
