The Independent School Awards recognize individuals, corporations and foundations that have had a profound impact on an independent school, the independent school sector and/or CASE and those working to advance independent schools.
The 2020 honorees:
Marlene Connor, Database Manager, University School of Milwaukee (Wisconsin), recipient of the Independent School Support Staff Distinguished Service Award.
Michael J. Littell, Vice President for Advancement, Saint Xavier High School (Kentucky), recipient of the Robert Bell Crow Memorial Award.
Mark R. Shenkman, Trustee, Wilbraham & Monson Academy (Massachusetts), recipient of the Seymour Preston Award.
“These honorees serve as inspirational role models for the thousands of people who work each year to advance independent schools,” said Sue Cunningham, CASE President and CEO. “They deserve unending admiration, appreciation and respect for the important work that they continue to do on behalf of the institutions they serve.”
The awards are presented annually based on nominations from colleagues and peers after review by a panel of senior CASE volunteers.
Nominations for 2021 awards will be accepted starting in June 2020.
