Lifetime Achievement Award



The Lifetime Achievement Award, PAEA’s most prestigious award, honors an individual who has reached the pinnacle of their career in PA education. It recognizes a current or former program faculty or staff member who has made extraordinary contributions to PA education over a sustained period of time; therefore, it may not be awarded annually.
