Each year, SST 2 has the privilege of selecting regional recipients for both the Franklin B. Walter Outstanding Educator Award and the R.A. Horn Outstanding Student Achievement Award.  Many fantastic nominations were submitted this year for both awards and each nominee was extremely deserving.  However, the Selection Committee had to choose just one recipient for each award.  

(Drumroll, please!)

The R. A. Horn award is presented to one exemplary student from each of Ohio’s 16 State Support Team regions. Established by the Ohio Department of Education in honor of the late Dr. Raymond A. Horn, Assistant Superintendent of Public Instruction, this award recognizes students’ outstanding achievements. Acknowledged as a national leader in the field of special education, Dr. Horn devoted more than 60 years of service to improving the quality of life and learning for students with disabilities. 





The Franklin B. Walter award is given to an outstanding educator or team from each of the 16 State Support Teams in Ohio. Awarded to recipients who have made extraordinary contributions to the education of students with disabilities, this award is given in honor of the late Franklin B Walter, Superintendent of Public Instruction from 1977 until 1991, a post held longer than any other state superintendent in Ohio’s history. With over 50 years of service as a teacher and administrator, Dr. Walter’s leadership is evident in many of Ohio’s quality educational initiatives and programs, including the development of the nation’s first statewide plan for children with disabilities.
