The officers and council of the Boardman High School Alumni Association are seeking applications for the 2012 Boardman High School Distinguished Alumni award.
The purpose of the award is to recognize outstanding alumni of Boardman High School who have maintained a high standard of excellence and made a significant contribution in their fields of endeavor. These individuals must best exemplify the ideals and spirit of Boardman High School, and should serve as role models for current and future Boardman High School students.
The association is looking for nominations from fellow alumni or community leaders for applicants that meet the following criteria:
The nominee must have graduated from Boardman High School a minimum of 20 years prior to the year in which the award will be presented.
The nominee must have demonstrated recognized achievement in his/her profession.
The nominee should have made significant contributions benefiting his/her community, state or nation.
The nominee cannot be a current employee of the Boardman Local Schools or a member of the Board of Education at the time of their nomination.
The nominee cannot be self-nominated or nominated by an immediate family member.
The award winners will be presented with the award at the Senior Honors Assembly in May in front of all BHS students, faculty and senior parents. A copy of their award plague will be placed on the new alumni wall outside of the BHS office. Applications for the 2012 Distinguished Alumni Award are now available at boardmanalumni.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application, or call Cheryl Tarantino at 330-507-5454 for more information. Applications are due March 1.
The Officers of the Boardman High School Alumni Association are also seeking new members of the Boardman High School Alumni Council. The Alumni Association is a newly formed 501c3 and is officially recognized by the Boardman Local Schools and Boardman Board of Education.
Its mission statement reads "The Boardman High School Alumni Association is organized as a nonprofit corporation to promote interest in academics, athletics, and arts of the Boardman Locals School, foster fellowship among the alumni, and support social and charitable activities of the school and community."
The association is looking for local and out of town members that represent all decades of alumni. The Alumni Council meets quarterly in Boardman, but those living out of town may conference call in to participate.
Those interested in learning more, may email email@example.com with contact information or call Tarantino at 330-507-5454.
