Raider Nation Excellence Award
Have the accomplishments, contributions, or efforts of a Columbia Local School District employee made your day, week, or month? Starting this September, the Columbia Local Schools will utilize the Raider Nation Excellence Award to honor one employee who has walked the extra mile to provide exemplary service to Columbia students, parents, schools, or community.

We invite you to nominate an employee for this award by completing a Raider Nation Excellence Award Official Nomination Form and submitting it to the principal’s office of any Columbia School or the Superintendent’s office. The award winner will be honored on the district website, receive a commemorative plaque, and be recognized by the Columbia Board of Education.

Even if your nominee is not selected for the award he/she will receive a Certificate of Appreciation recognizing his/her efforts and accomplishments for that month. Be sure to consult the following program guidelines before you submit a nominee.
