Several recipients and their district representatives are included below.

In addition, Dr. Bobby Moore presented a motivational message to attendees on the importance of the work they do.  Dr. Moore served as a Middle School Principal, District Superintendent and was also a Senior Director for the national not-for profit organization Battelle for Kids (BFK). Bobby’s career in education and his work at BFK have focused on engaging and motivating educators through collaboration, professional development, innovation, and a laser-like focus on the mission of ensuring that all students reach their fullest potential.
