The MO-CASE Distinguished Service Award is presented to an individual who
- has 20 years of service in special education administration or a related field,
-has made outstanding contributions beyond those expected in an individual's job,
-has served in more than one area, such as, research, teaching, publication, administration, community service, and
-has made statewide or national contributions or has received recognition for such contributions.
