Awards & Scholarships

Pat Kraft dedicated his career to the students, staff and community of Clovis Unified School District and to CASBO’s Central Section. His willingness to lead and mentor section members with a smile and positive attitude is greatly missed.

Last year, CASBO’s Central Section awarded five $1,000 scholarships in Pat’s honor!

You must be an individual CASBO Central Section member* to be eligible for this scholarship. Scholarship criteria include:

  • Amount: $1,000
  • Sponsored by: CASBO Central Section
  • Eligibility: Available to current CASBO Central Section members*
*For purposes of scholarship eligibility requirements, an “individual CASBO Central Section member” is a paid Organizational Subscription Employee Member. If you are not an eligible member, but you know someone who would be interested in this scholarship, please feel free to pass this information along!

The 2021 application window has closed. Check back late summer 2022 for next year’s scholarship.

The Central Section participates in the statewide Robert “Bob” Reeves Scholarship, which is administered by the CASBO Associate Members Committee. Please view that scholarship for more details and how to apply.
