WASBO Professional Recognition Awards

WASBO is fortunate to count among its ranks many outstanding District Professionals who work tirelessly on behalf of their school districts and Wisconsin's children. In recognition of the tremendous work our members perform, WASBO has created several annual awards to honor those who truly go above and beyond in their service to their school district, their community and WASBO. These awards are an opportunity to showcase WASBO members' contributions to their districts, and to provide the public with a better understanding of the exemplary work WASBO members do to benefit students.
