Beginning in the Spring of 2019, the Tri-State Area School Study Council will offer TWO awards! The Jean E. Winsand Emerging Woman in Education Award will be initiated and awarded to an exemplary emerging educational leader. This new award for an emerging education leader will be celebrated alongside the award that is typically given out at the workshop, honoring a distinguished woman in education. Having two awards allows Tri-State to recognize and honor the accomplishments of women who are at various stages of their leadership careers. Many talented, emerging women in education are positively shaping our schools in western Pennsylvania. The Jean E. Winsand Emerging Woman in Education Award offers a fitting way to recognize these outstanding women.
