GRAND GORGE  –Dr. Jennifer Avery, Deputy Superintendent of the Otsego Northern Catskills (ONC) BOCES, was honored this week with the “Philip B. Fredenburg Memorial Award for Outstanding Service” from the Association of School Business Officials New York (ASBO NY). The award is “awarded to an individual School Business Official whose service and contributions had a positive impact on the Association, its members, and the entire profession,” according to the organization.

Dr. Avery, who is completing her nineteenth year as an administrator for ONC BOCES served as a board member and is past president of ASBO NY, and is active on several committees. In addition, she has served on the board and was president of ASBO International. She also serves on the boards of directors for both the New York Liquid Asset Fund and the New York Schools Insurance Reciprocal, having served as president of each of those organizations.

ONC BOCES District Superintendent, Dr. Catherine Huber, said in support of Dr. Avery’s nomination that, “In Jenna, I found a true partner in the leadership of our BOCES and of our region of nineteen component districts. Jenna is knowledgeable about all aspects of BOCES as well as the work of component districts. She readily shares her expertise with our component superintendents and business officials. Jenna is well regarded as a trusted colleague, expert in school operations, and thoughtful counsel and guide.”

ASBO NY colleagues James Fregelette (Erie 1 BOCES), Victor Manuel (Jericho UFSD), Kathleen Manuel (Port Washington UFSD), Michael Sheperd (CiTi BOCES), and Herbert Chessler (retired), served with Dr. Avery on the Board of Directors and/or on committees wrote that, “With over 25 years of experience as a School Business Official, Jenna’s dedication, leadership, and unwavering commitment to the education sector are truly unparalleled. ... She embodies values such as integrity, customer service, loyalty, and innovation in her daily practice, inspiring others to uphold these principles. Jenna’s willingness to share her expertise and provide invaluable advice demonstrates her deep commitment to the growth and success of her colleagues and the profession as a whole.”

The Fredenburg Award was presented at the annual ASBO New York Education Summit in Saratoga Springs.
