McGuffey Award


The deadline for submitting McGuffey honorees has past. Thank you to everyone who has honored their exceptional board member.

We are looking forward to presenting McGuffey awards to well-deserved board members. The CASB McGuffey Award honors unique board members who bring committed and passionate service to their board work. Every district has the opportunity to submit one board member each year. Honorees are recognized at CASB’s Fall Regional Meetings and featured on our website, through social media, and during our 81st Annual Convention December 2 - 4, 2021. Please take time to select a member of your board for this worthy recognition. 

McGuffey deadline to be aware of as you head into the summer months.

  • All McGuffey awardee information must be submitted no later than August 16, 2021.

Consider the following when choosing a board member for this prestigious award:

Most phones take high quality photos, just no screen shots please. Email the photo to Connie Summers, [email protected]

First published in 1836, the McGuffey Readers were a series of seven books with stories and poems that taught reading and grammar to students as well as help them develop good character qualities. It was one of the most widely used and influential textbooks of its time in transferring knowledge and the virtues required to fulfill the responsibilities of citizenship in a free society.
