Board member Olson wins national award
Hillsborough County School Board member Candy Olson was named the winner of the 2011 Richard R. Green Award last month in Boston at the fall conference of the Council of Great City Schools. The annual award, which is the nation's highest honor for education leadership, is named in honor of the first African-American chancellor of the New York City school system. With the award, Olson received a $10,000 college scholarship to present to the Hillsborough high school senior of her choice or to a student from her high school alma mater. Olson was first elected to the Hillsborough School Board in 1994 and currently serves as its vice chairwoman.
