PASPA recognizes the importance of excellence and professionalism in the field of School Human Resources. William K. Dowler was one of the founders and a charter member of the Pennsylvania Association of School Personnel Administrators. Bill was the consummate personnel professional, combining great technical knowledge with excellent "people" skills. He was always willing to share this expertise with other practitioners in the field. Bill Dowler set the benchmark that the Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators recognizes as a goal for all of its members.
The purpose of the award is to recognize a practicing school personnel/HR professional who is a member of the association. This individual will possess qualities and skills most often demonstrated by an outstanding personnel administrator. The award, when given, is presented at the annual conference.
Please consider nominating a PASPA colleague who exemplifies the qualities for which this special recognition is intended.
