Assistant Superintendent Vickie Nissen Receives Monarch Award in 2017

English|Español|Polski

CCSD59 would like to congratulate Vickie Nissen, District 59 Assistant Superintendent for Business Services/Chief School Business Official, on being selected to receive the prestigious Monarch Award.

The Illinois Association of School Business Officials (ABSO) Board has awarded Nissen the Illinois ASBO Monarch Award for 2017.

According to the Illinois ASBO website, “The Monarch Award is one of the highest honors that Illinois ASBO bestows upon its members. The award is not just a measure of extraordinary deeds or a lengthy career – it is a recognition of those school business officials who, throughout their career and lifetime, have demonstrated excellence in service to their school district, communities and their profession. This award is a celebration of the best school business management has to offer.”

In addition to receiving an award and statewide trade news and media recognition, $1,000 will be presented in Nissen’s name to CCSD59 to encourage and support student community service work.

Nissen, who started her CCSD59 career in the 15 – 16 school year, came to the district with with many years of experience in leadership positions in the Business Services field and is very appreciative of being selected for the award. “I feel extreme, extreme gratitude in being nominated for this award,” she said. “I also feel very unworthy knowing all of great things that my colleagues do for their districts and communities.”

She will receive the award on April 26, 2017, at ABSO’s Annual Conference in Peoria, IL.

Dr. Art Fessler, Superintendent of CCSD59, said that although Nissen has only been with CCSD59 for a couple of years, it became apparent early that she has a sharp mind for building relationships, culture, and a deep understanding of business services. “I am proud to learn that Ms. Nissen has been honored as the recipient of the 2016-17 IASBO Monarch Award, but not surprised,” he said. “I consider her to one of the best in the business from her high level of integrity to her deep understanding of the CSBO role and responsibilities, and she truly is an outstanding person and CSBO.”
