Loretta McCormick Awards

The Annual Loretta McCormick After School Achievement Awards

Loretta McCormick was a dedicated and inspiring leader of the Creating Rural Opportunities Partnership (CROP) Program. She was well known for her enthusiasm and commitment to the CROP Program. She worked tirelessly to see CROP realize its vision of excellence in the after-school program so that all students can learn, achieve, and have the confidence to succeed in our ever changing world. Ms. McCormick passed away in 2014.  To honor her, three Loretta McCormick After-School Achievement Awards were created; one for an adult professional, a peer leader (student staff member), and a student participant.

For the fourth annual awards, we invite school staff, parents, and community members to nominate individuals who demonstrate outstanding dedication to the CROP program. Nominations will be accepted in three categories: adult professional, peer leader (student staff member), and student participant. A selection committee will choose a recipient for each award based on the selection criteria.
