Anne L. Bryant: former executive director of the National School Boards Association

“He’s (Chuck's) a person who has spent the last several years committed to making sure that new board members, in particular, have the knowledge and abilities and skills to be successful and make contributions to their communities. This is an overdue recognition for the work he does.”

Dick Anderson: former NSBA associate executive director for federation member services, of the National School Boards Association

 “Chuck has had a long career; he’s done some innovative things. It is, in an award sense [2006 Shannon Award], the Oscar for school board association recognition of service. He pioneered online learning for school board members in 1999, for example, because he recognized the time demands that having a family, working, being involved with community organizations and serving on a school board presents. This was a way to say you don’t have to travel to a regional location for training. Instead, you can do it at home at 10 o’clock when you have a little bit of down time. ... It gives you one more venue for reaching folks who would not travel. It’s one less reason for not being smarter — here’s a way of doing it that is user friendly. Namit is a pioneer in many ways.”
