OLEAN CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT FOUNDATION
Academic Wall of Fame – Nomination
The Academic Wall of Fame is sponsored and managed by the Olean City School District Foundation (OCSDF or Foundation). Through the Academic Wall of Fame, the Foundation recognizes individuals whose lives, accomplishments and endeavors reflect the values and tradition of excellence fostered by the Olean City School District. The Foundation, established in November 2002, was created to provide additional funds and in-kind donations to support special programs, curriculum enrichment and training in all Olean City Schools. The Foundation encourages extra effort and creativity in order to maintain high standards in all of the Olean Schools. Any teacher, staff member, or Olean resident with a good educational idea, and a solid plan to implement it with proper approvals may apply for a grant. The Foundation accepts donations to enable it to award such grants. For more information on the OSCDF, please visit the Foundation’s website at http://www.ocsdfoundation.com.
Eligibility: The Board of Directors of the Olean City School District Foundation accepts nominations for the Academic Wall of Fame based on in-school or post-school contributions in several areas including educational, professional, arts, charitable endeavors and connection to the City of Olean and its School District. Noteworthy accomplishments as a citizen are also considered. All applications will remain active indefinitely (previously applications remained active for 3 years only) and be reviewed each year, along with new applicants, for consideration into the Wall of Fame.
There is a ten year waiting period for student nominees. School District faculty, staff and administrators as well as Board of Education members (who may not necessarily be Olean graduates) may be considered anytime following retirement or leaving the Olean City School District community. Special friends of the Olean City School District may also be considered at the discretion of the Academic WOF Nomination Committee. Members of the OCSD Foundation Board of Directors are not eligible to be nominated until after their tenure on the Foundation Board has been completed.
