The 2019 Nassau BOCES Education Partner Award honorees were chosen for this honor from among dozens of nominees by a committee of distinguished educators and community leaders. They identified individuals and organizations who personified the spirit of educational partnerships and/or demonstrated measurable impact on public education in Nassau County. Nominations for the awards are accepted in six categories: Education Partner,Nassau BOCES Employee, Organization, School Board Member, Student and Teacher. Just like Nassau BOCES itself — the program is open to people from all walks of life. Past honorees of the program, now in its thirteenth year, include educators, coaches, business executives, school volunteers, secretaries, students, college professors, nonprofit leaders, legislators and retirees, to name a few.
