HOMER L. SAUNDERS MENTOR AWARD

The Mentor Award identifies a SBI member who is deserving of recognition for outstanding contribution to SBI Director or Case Supervisor training and development.  Any current member is eligible to nominate another current member.  Nominations can only be for individuals who have not previously won the Mentor award.
Previous winners who are members and current officers can vote for the nominees, and there can be more than one winner each year.  There does not have to be a winner, if nominations are not worthy of the honor.  You may only win this honor once.  Nominations are solicited in the fall with voting occurring by December 1.  The selection process is handled by the SBI President-Elect.

The Mentor Award was first presented in 1993.  Beginning in 1994, the Mentor Award became known as the Homer L. Saunders Mentor Award in honor of Homer L. Saunders, longtime SBI member.
