Each year, the MTA Retired Members Committee sponsors the “Honor Our Own” Award. The award honors an active or retired MTA member for his or her outstanding influence on students, beginning educators and association members. All of the honorees are nominated by fellow educators.
Candidates for the “Honor Our Own” award demonstrate professional responsibility and achievement in one’s field; displays of leadership, creativity or innovation; evidence of the nominee’s impact on the school community, students and association; and examples of how the nominee has improved the image of public education.
The award is presented at the MTA Retired Gathering held each year in the fall.
