The application window is about to close for the CASBO Robert “Bob” Reeves Scholarships! Apply by this Friday, October 15, 2021, and take that first step toward your enhancing your professional role.

Sponsored by the CASBO Associate Member Committee (AMC), this scholarship is designed to help pay for some of the associated costs of continuing education or training and is available to eligible CASBO members* as a tribute to Robert E. Reeves, longtime CASBO member and treasurer who passed away August 30, 2006.

With integrity and enthusiasm for school business, Dr. Reeves served as CASBO treasurer for 12 years, amid a career spanning five decades. He retired as director of fiscal services for the Orange County Department of Education in 1989 at the age of 72, after serving in several Orange County school districts around his Glendale home, where he and his wife Beulah lived for 50 years.

“Bob was a legend,” says his friend Ira Carter, a CASBO past president who worked with Dr. Reeves for many years. “He was totally dedicated to CASBO and to all the things we stood for in terms of self-improvement and being the best at whatever we are in life.”

This scholarship honors Dr. Reeves’ commitment to school business by promoting continuing education and training for CASBO members. To be eligible, an applicant must be a current individual CASBO member* whose section has an active AMC liaison and must not have received the scholarship within the past five years, among other requirements.

Each section board will administer its own scholarship applications and choose the winning applicants, and the AMC will thereafter approve the winners. Preference will be given to those applicants pursuing formal education or professional certifications.
