ESC Staff Member Honored by OSBA

Brooke Bovenizer

Last night at the Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA) Central Region Fall Conference dinner, the ESC’s Ms. Brooke Bovenizer received the Exemplary School Employee Award. The Central Region of OSBA annually chooses to honor a nominated individual who is deemed critical to the success of a school district and/or educational service center. The ESC’s Governing Board nominated Brooke for this award noting her exceptional service over the past 16 years as executive secretary.

Here is an excerpt from the nomination describing Brooke and her work:
Educational service centers, ours included, provide a wide variety of services for educators and schools ranging from substitute teachers to staff professional development to executive search services. The processes to hire staff or participate in these programs and services can be cumbersome. However, Brooke assists hundreds of individuals and organizations navigate the processes necessary to participate in and/or make these programs and services happen easily and efficiently.

It continues:
The ESC works with its employees to teach them the “ESC WAY.” The ESC WAY is an initiative that supports our high standard of service. We want customers to always feel like they are being treated as a priority through professional, friendly encounters and communications. If there is one individual that embodies the full meaning of the ESC WAY, it is Brooke Bovenizer. We all strive to meet the standard she has set for customer service to internal and external customers alike, and for this, there is no one more deserving of the Exemplary School Employee Award in the Central Ohio Region.

The ESC is thankful to have Brooke supporting its work and purpose to meet the needs of schools, educators, and students every day.
