“The more information shared about nominees that can present to the selection committee, the better,” said Lindsey, who said that applications are judged on graduation status, professional expertise, philanthropy, volunteerism, nation and state recognition, local recognition, leadership roles, community ties, Public school advocacy, school advocacy, letters of support and other factors.
