Dr. Karen M. Williams Leadership Award

Due to the pandemic, SST9 has decided that we would NOT be accepting any nominations nor ultimately awarding a recipient for the Dr. Karen M. Williams Leadership Award. We recognize the exorbitant stress that administrators and other educators are under, and to honor the integrity of this award, it was felt to revisit this prestigious award in 2022. Please please thinking of an outstanding leader in your district, school or LEA whom you may wish to nominate in January 2022.
