Several ECOEA members were OEA Award recipients.  Each received their award at the annual OEA Awards Banquet in 2012.

Kelli Green, member of the Perry Classroom Teachers Association, received the OEA Media Award for Public Service for her outstanding efforts in the petition drive to repeal SB5 and the defeat of Issue 2 at the polls… Kelli had her mom, Kathleen Green, a former member of the Massillon EA and now an OEA-Retired member, on hand for the Award ceremonies… 

   Mandy Bankert, here with her husband, was the recipient of the OEA John F. Kennedy Scholarship.  Mandy received a $4000 award that is presented each year to a member who is a career teacher enrolled in a graduate level program and in need of financial assistance.
