Ottumwa Leadership Academy is now accepting nominations for the Barb Allison Alumni Award to be given at graduation on June 1st, 2023.
Barb Allison Alumni Award is given to O.L.A. alumni who are Go-Givers. They are actively engaged in service and are dedicated to building leaders in our community. Characteristics include – authentic, integrity, servant leadership.
Barb graduated from Ottumwa Leadership Academy in 2014, joined the Advisory Board, and helped establish the Alumni Association. Along with the scholarship, many great opportunities have emerged from the alumni association – ways to keep graduates engaged in our community as well as providing professional development and networking.
In October 2019, Barb passed away, leaving a legacy of loving and serving her family, friends, and community. She attended every alumni event she could – whether it was serving brats at Oktoberfest, greeting new class members at networking mixers, diving into a book discussion, or checking people in at graduation.
She was the ultimate go-giver that we as alumni of Ottumwa Leadership Academy strive to emulate.
Nominations are due by Monday, May 8th at 8:00 a.m. using the following form:
