The Board Member Awards Program, with basic certification as its cornerstone, was developed in 1990 with input from both veteran Michigan school board members and representatives from higher education and state administrator organizations. Its goal is to enhance the ability of school boards to improve Michigan public schools and the achievement of 1.4 million Michigan students.
We also want to highlight those who have served on a Michigan public school board of education for more than 25 years. These individuals are the embodiment of the commitment and desire to see our students succeed.
