LEWIS E. LOVE MEMORIAL SCIENCE EDUCATION AWARD - FAQs
The Great Neck North Class of '63 planned to invite Mr. Love to its
reunion. Unfortunately, he died several months prior to that event. The
class decided to honor his memory with an award in his name that
spoke to his inspired teaching.
What is the purpose of the award?
To recognize an outstanding teacher in the Great Neck Public Schools
by funding a project or educational opportunity both for the individual to
gain new expertise in his or her field and to enhance the teaching of
science in the Great Neck Public Schools.
Who can receive the award?
Any full-time tenured teacher in the Great Neck Public Schools- not
necessarily a science teacher.
Criteria include not only the merit of the proposed project but the also a
record of distinguished teaching of science and a dedication to the
intellectual development of students.
No one may receive the award more than once.
How is the award funded?
The corpus of donated funds, ~$60,000 at year end 2016, is managed
by the Great Neck Public Schools at no cost. Awards will be granted
annually from this corpus until it is totally depleted.
Are donations to the award tax-deductible?
Donations will be by check made out to the Great Neck Public Schools
and therefore are tax-deductible.
How much is the award?
Up to $10,000 annually.
Unspent funds are returned to the corpus.
How can the award money be spent?
The award may be spent on a project, an educational opportunity,
equipment, or anything else that contributes to the teaching of science in
the Great Neck Public Schools.
Who decides on the recipient?
There is a committee made up of teachers and students, rotating every
year. Committee members are not eligible for the award in the year they
serve on the committee.
Why don't the alumni or donors make the decision as to who gets the award?
The people who worked with the schools to design the award felt that there had
to be a mechanism for awarding it that went beyond the ability of the
Class of '63 to be involved.
