Albert W. Hawk Award for Distinguished School Board Service
The Genesee Valley School Board Associations' Albert W. Hawk Award for Distinguished School Board Service is presented annually to a current or former school board member who, in the judgment of the Distinguished Service Award Committee, should be recognized for outstanding contributions to public education and children in his or her own community.
The award is named for Albert W. Hawk, a longtime advocate for rural schools and member of both the Dansville Board of Education and the Genesee Valley BOCES Board of Education. Hawk also chaired many state and national School Board committees. Pictured below are past recipients.
