The award was presented by John Conwell, Superintendant of Unalaska School District during the annual summer meeting of the Alaska Superintendents Association held in Seward.
The MacKinnon Educational Excellence and Human Recognition Award was established in 1985 to recognize Don MacKinnon and his service to education in Alaska.
Don was the first Executive Director of the Alaska Association of School Administrators and the Alaska Council of School Administrators. He was instrumental in forming a cooperative alliance among all school administrators & organizations.
In honor of his work to forge professional relationships on behalf of Alaska’s young people, the AASA Board of Directors established this award to be given to school board members who have provided meritorious service to their school districts and communities.
