Nomination Form

Presented by the Town of Tonawanda Youth Board

This award is named in honor of Brian Dugan, a Kenmore West High School teacher.  Through his compassion and dedication, he was able to reach students of all academic abilities.  Brian’s perspective on life was positive, unique and refreshing.  He was a great role model for his students.

To honor his spirit and dedication, the Town of Tonawanda Youth Board has established the Brian Dugan Outstanding Teacher Award to be given annually to a teacher in our area who most closely embodies the values, skills and character of Brian Dugan.

The Town of Tonawanda Youth Board is asking each high school’s student government to nominate one teacher they feel fits the criteria. The submission must be in essay form.

The essay must address the following qualities for the teacher nominated, and specific examples for each point should be included whenever possible:
· Compassion for students

· The ability to use one’s entire personality in teaching
· An interest in students finding success at all levels of achievement
· Lessons on content that connect to students’ lives
