WSAA George Tipler Award


To honor the efforts of former WASB Executive Director George Tipler, who initiated the founding of the Wisconsin School Attorney Association and was a long-serving advocate for the boys and girls of Wisconsin, the WSAA board of directors in 1994 established the George Tipler Award for Distinguished Service in School Law. The award is presented annually at the WSAA membership meeting to an individual nominated by school officials or member attorneys and selected by the WSAA Board of Directors.
