    Award Recipients
     
    Annie Sullivan Award Recipient
    The purpose of this award is to recognize a teacher who exemplifies caring involvement with students with disabilities, and goes beyond the duties of the classroom in helping others in the school and community to understand and accept people with disabilities. Some examples may include involvement in the Special Olympics or participation in local groups for the students with disabilities. One person is recognized annually from each participating intermediate unit.

    A. William Vantine Leadership Award Recipient
    A hallmark of A. William Vantine's leadership during 16 years as the Executive Director of the Bucks County Intermediate Unit, was his ability to create a shared vision, then work with others to make this vision real. He accomplished this through implementing creative administrative and supervisory practices, fostering programmatic innovations and by actively promoting programs to increase the reach and influence of the Intermediate Unit. The A. William Vantine "Excellence in Leadership Award" is intended to continue this rich legacy by recognizing a member of the Intermediate Unit staff who exemplifies the ideal of demonstrated leadership through innovative program development and implementation, or the promotion of Intermediate Unit programs.

    Richard O. Coe Rookie Scholarship Award Recipients
    Richard O. Coe served the Bucks County Intermediate Unit 1972-2007 in the roles of teacher, supervisor, Special Education Director and as the Executive Director. In recognition of his life's work and celebration of his retirement in June 2007, the Bucks County Intermediate Unit Education Foundation will honor his distinguished career by dedicating two yearly scholarships in his name. The purpose of these awards is to recognize individuals in their early years of service to the Bucks County Intermediate Unit who demonstrate exemplary commitment to the field of education. Two individuals will be selected for these scholarships; one will be a professional staff member: a teacher, therapist, social worker or psychologist. The other will be an Intermediate Unit employee serving in a support capacity: Instructional Assistant, C-Print Captionist, Job Coach, Interpreter, Bus Driver, Administrative Assistant, etc. Each award will be in the amount of $500, to be used toward relevant professional development experiences. College courses, workshops or conferences are examples of appropriate uses of this scholarship. Events that occur during the academic calendar year must be approved by respective supervisors.
