The Mack Floyd Jr. Honors in Education Award is given to recognize educators and community workers who have shown tremendous dedication to serving in various ways throughout their careers. Recipients are chosen based on their initiative to perform the service, the community's need for the service performed, the creativity used to solve a problem, and the impact of the service on the community.
