Former Dawbarn Award Winners

2017 Dawbarn Education Award Recipients

Dunlop “Buz” Dawbarn established a permanent fund at the Community Foundation in 1992 to support the Dawbarn Education Awards. Since that time, the Foundation has distributed over $1.5 million, through 227 Dawbarn Education Awards, to recognize extraordinary commitment to inspiring education and learning among the young people of our public schools.

“It was Mr. Dawbarn’s wish to reward individuals for their efforts to inspire youth in our public schools,” noted Dan Layman, the Foundation’s CEO. “In doing so, he also hoped that others would follow in their footsteps for the good of our community.”
