OEA Doris L. Allen/Human and Civil Rights Award

Doris L. Allen, OEA Human Relations Consultant, was killed December 1, 1974, in the crash of a TWA airliner while en route to Washington, D.C., to attend a Human Relations staff conference sponsored by NEA.

During her brief time on the OEA staff, she developed a handbook for local association human relations committees. She also developed an audio-visual presentation on human relations awareness, conducted human relations programs around Ohio, and served as a member of the OEA’s Racism Awareness Cadre. OEA’s Minority Caucus was renamed the Doris L. Allen Minority Caucus in recognition of her contributions.

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.

Recipients of the OEA Doris L. Allen/Human and Civil Rights Award will be honored at the OEA Spring Representative Assembly.

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.
