OEA Charles A. Glatt/Human and Civil Rights Award

Dr. Charles A. Glatt was a Professor of Education at The Ohio State University specializing in human relations, affirmative action, and desegregation.

He served as a presenter at several OEA workshops and is fondly remembered for his presentation entitled “Ego Trippin’ with Charlie G.” On September 19, 1975, Dr. Glatt, a nationally known desegregationist, was shot and killed by an assassin while working on the desegregation plan in Dayton Public Schools.

This “Special Friend” Award symbolizes the commitment Charles Glatt had to humanity as well as the equality of educational opportunity for all. The purpose of this award is to recognize achievements in human relations and related intercultural activities throughout the state of Ohio that impact upon children, communities, the educational process, and/or the United Education Profession.

The Charles A. Glatt Award is presented to an individual or group.

Current members of the OEA Board of Directors and association staff members are not eligible for this scholarship. In addition, OEA Awards and Scholarship Committee Members are not eligible for two years after completion of service on the committee to apply or to be nominated.
