We are three weeks away from the deadline to submit nominations for the 2023 Ron Dougherty Award! The Ron Dougherty Award is given to the BOCES employee who embodies Mr. Dougherty’s selfless commitment and dedication to our BOCES and our community ... someone who “walks the walk” in their commitment to personal and professional growth and community involvement.
As we have each year, we invite all BOCES employees to participate in this outstanding recognition by nominating a colleague for consideration.
Attached is a nomination form for the 2023 Ron Dougherty Award. We ask that you take the time to think about the many co-workers who have inspired you with their energy, devotion, and raw talent, and then put those thoughts to paper in the form of a nomination. The winner will be announced at our annual Employee Recognition Ceremony on May 10.
Deadline: Thursday, April 6.
Since 2002, BOCES has annually selected the one employee who best exemplifies the spirit and dedication that were the hallmarks of Mr. Dougherty’s many years of service to our schools and our community. A member of the BOCES Board of Trustees from 1976 to 2006 (its president from 1985 to 2005), Mr. Dougherty also served on the Tioga Central School board for 11 years. He is a former Tioga County legislator and past president of the Broome-Tioga School Boards Association. He also was instrumental in the formation of the Broome-Tioga Coalition for Education and in 2003 received the regional Jefferson Award.
