WSSCA’s Lifetime Achievement Award Recipients:
We have all known someone who has made a difference in our lives; in our organizations; in our profession. With over 300 members throughout the states of Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota, finding outstanding professionals has never been a problem for this organization. Yet, recognizing those who have been accepted by their colleagues as the “best of the best,” has been, and should be, an infrequent honor bestowed upon very few – those of extraordinary success who have devoted their professional lives to WSSCA’s mantra: Keep Schools Safe.
WSSCA has reserved special recognition for these exceptional men and women. It is the highest award we present, and the name itself speaks volumes to the level of accomplishment and respect the recipient has earned over the course of his/her outstanding career. We simply call it the Life Time Achievement Award.
As you read each name below, consider that thousands of WSSCA members over the past four decades who have been eligible. Maybe then you will understand the impact these individuals have had on this organization, the school safety discipline, and the students and schools we serve.
WSSCA is one of the oldest school safety organizations in the entire United States of America – and this is our Hall of Fame. We proudly present the recipients of the WSSCA Life Time Achievement Award.
