Dr. Vaughn D. Luster, Jr., Administrator of the Year
The Vaughn D. Luster, Jr. Award goes to the head of a National Christian School Association member school considered by his or her peers to best manifest the highest level of professionalism while leading a Christian school. The award is named in honor of Dr. Vaughn D. Luster, Jr. who served as head of two NCSA member schools—Mobile Christian Academy and Dallas Christian School—and on the NCSA Board of Trustees and Board of Commissioners before his death in 1998. The award is presented at the NCSA annual convention.
The winner of the Luster Award must be a current head of a member school of the National Christian School Association and have ten consecutive years of experience as the head of an NCSA member school. All eligible heads who meet these criteria are listed on this ballot as well as those who have won the award previously and are therefore not eligible.
Please rank our three candidates and points from your ballot will be awarded on the basis of five (5) points for first place, three (3) points for second place and one (1) point for third place. You are not obligated to choose three candidates in order for the ballot to be counted, however. Each school has one ballot.
