The Earl Reum Award

The Earl Reum Award was created in 1991 to honor the outstanding contributions of writer and speaker Dr. Earl Reum, whose contributions to the field of student leadership development impacted thousands of advisers and students in the United States and Canada.


Dr. Earl Reum
1931-2010

 

Dr. Reum wrote extensively to create a leadership curriculum for teacher and student use and has authored many articles and monographs dealing with a variety of student activity topics. He founded the National Association of Workshop Directors (NAWD). He was a leader in his own right and an ardent supporter of student activities.

This award was created by the National Association of Student Activity Advisers (NASAA) in 1991, and transferred to NAWD in 2004, to recognize and honor those who have helped train other advisors so that they in turn may provide leadership training for students.

Up to eight Regional award winners each receive a plaque and the National award recipient receives a ring and plaque, provided by Herff Jones, Inc. The regional and national Earl Reum awards are presented each December, during the National Conference on Student Activities sponsored by NAWD. Recipients must be present to receive the award.
