MICHIGAN CITY | Michigan City Area Schools is seeking nominations for the 2013 Michigan City Area Schools Wall of Fame.
This annual award, first presented in 1976, honors school employees who have made outstanding contributions to the children of the Michigan City Area Schools. Employees from every area are eligible: administrators, bus drivers, custodians, food service personnel, instructional assistants, maintenance personnel, paraprofessionals, teachers, and secretarial staff.
To qualify for nomination, the candidate must have been employed by the Michigan City Area Schools for a minimum of 15 years. He or she must have been retired or separated from the school system for at least five (5) years. Employees from schools that were independent before school reorganization as well as those from schools no longer in existence are also eligible for the honor. Death does not make a person ineligible.
All applications remain on file for three years. At the end of that time, candidates must be re-nominated. (When candidates are removed from the active list, the person who nominated them will be notified.)
Nomination forms are available at all school offices, the MCAS Transportation/Service and Plant Planning Buildings, the MCAS Administration Building, and the Michigan City Public Library. The form is also available on the MCAS website, EducateMC.net/WOF.
Deadline for nominations is May 2, 2013. For more information, contact Betsy Kohn at 873-2000, ext. 8365 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
