2016 Members of the Year


Each year, CSEA honors members who provide exemplary service to California students and dedication to the ideals and goals of our union with the Members of the Year award. The five honorees selected as 2016 Members of the Year provide excellent service at their jobs, forge real connections with students, and show they care through their actions. These individuals understand their role in education and in our union. They know that going that extra mile will help students succeed, and that classified employees make a difference. Their supervisors and coworkers recognize their diligence and dedication, and CSEA congratulates them for this distinct honor.
