The Third Annual Loretta McCormick After School Achievement Awards


*Please click here for nomination packet

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. For the third 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 listed on the pages below.

Last year, the award recipients were: Rosey Iacono, Hunter-Tannersville Central School Site Coordinator (Adult Professional); Thomas Fromer, Hunter-Tannersville Central School (Peer Leader); and Ainsley Mummenthey, Jefferson Central School (Student Participant).

2016-2017 nominees and selected recipients will be announced at an award ceremony on March 6th, 2017 at Roxbury Central School during the CROP All-Staff Training. Recipients will also be recognized during their regular school award ceremonies. The recipients will be announced to the public via a press release and information listed on the ONC BOCES website.
