Click Here for Nomination Forms

Loretta McCormick was a dedicated and inspiring leader of the ONC BOCES Creating Rural Opportunities Partnership (CROP) Program. She was well known for her enthusiasm and commitment to the CROP Program. She worked hard 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 on Christmas day 2014. To honor her, three Loretta McCormick After-School Achievement Awards were created. For the second 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 of three volunteers (school administrator, program partner, and a CROP staff person) will choose a recipient for each award based on the selection criteria listed on the nomination forms.

Last year, the award recipients were: Mary Amadon, Charlotte Valley Central School Site Coordinator (Adult Professional); Becky Jones, Roxbury Central School and Cora Martin, Margaretville Central School (Peer Leaders); and Alexis “Lilly” Saltsgiver (Student Participant).

2015-2016 nominees will be recognized at CROP End of Year Celebration, and selected recipients will be announced and presented with their award. The recipients will also be announced to the public via a press release and information listed on the ONC BOCES website and twitter.
