J. W. Reason Elementary Named 2019 OAESA Hall of Fame School

The Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators (OAESA) announced that J. W. Reason Elementary in the Hilliard City School District has been selected as a 2019 OAESA Hall of Fame School.

The Hall of Fame School Award recognizes schools that engage faculty, students, and the community to provide a quality school experience. The school staff submitted an extensive application documenting the effectiveness of their educational program in several areas.

Hall of Fame Schools were chosen by two committees of OAESA members; one of which read and scored the applications and the other that conducted on-site evaluations of qualifying schools. About J. W. Reason Elementary, committee members wrote, “J. W. Reason Elementary truly contains all of the elements desired of a Hall of Fame School; it is a warm, inviting place of learning in which every child and adult is prideful to belong. The mission of the district is evidenced not only by the signage throughout the building: Ready for Tomorrow, but is witnessed through the interactions of this outstanding principal, amazing staff, and involved community.”

OAESA will recognize winners of the Hall of Fame Award during an awards luncheon to be held June 14, 2019, at the Hilton Columbus at Easton. Principal Jacki Prati will be presented with the award, including $1,000, to be used at the principal’s discretion.
