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!

Congratulations to the 2021-22 Award Recipients!
