Columbus — At the 2012 annual conference of the Ohio Association of School Business Officials (OASBO), Roy Johnson, treasurer/CFO of Southern Local School District, was honored with the association’s Southeast Region Distinguished Service Award.
Johnson received a commemorative award and a $500 scholarship to grant to a college-bound senior from Southern Local Schools. The scholarship is sponsored by public finance firm RBC Capital Markets.
OASBO’s Distinguished Service Awards program is a series of five awards (each with a $500 student scholarship), recognizing one member from each region of the state who has made a significant contribution to OASBO, to his/her profession and the community. From the regions, an overall winner is selected for the Virginia Ramsey award and granted an additional $1,000 student scholarship.
Johnson, a school district treasurer for five years, has served OASBO, his profession, and his community in many capacities. With OASBO, he has been active on several committees, currently a member of the Website/Technology Advisory committee, and past member of the Education Finance/ODE Advisory and the Insurance committees.
Johnson’s leadership role also extends to OASBO’s Southern Valley Chapter where he serves as vice president.
Outside the school business community, Johnson enjoys spending time with his family and helping with youth sports.
OASBO’s Executive Director David Varda states, “Our members are the key players responsible annually for billions of public dollars within public school districts. Their professional successes and personal contributions to their profession and community often go unrecognized, so we’re excited to be able to formally applaud their efforts.”
Varda continues, “OASBO is proud that recognition of our members also leads to scholarships for the students we serve.”
Other regional winners included: Pam Mustovich, treasurer/CFO, Springfield-Clark Career Technology Center (southwest region); Sandy Moeglin, treasurer/CFO of Marlington Local Schools and Massillon City Schools (northeast region); Larry Hanneman, treasurer/CFO of EHOVE Career Center (northwest region); and Christine Blue, Finance Director/Treasurer of Delaware City Schools (Central Region and Virginia Ramsey Award).
