A business manager of the Ascension Parish School Board is one of the winners of a scholarship awarded by the Association of School Business Officials International.

The group announced the recipients of the 2022 Emerging Leaders Fellowship last week. The scholarship program, which is sponsored by Security Benefit, rewards school business leaders who have five years or less of experience with $2,000 to attend ASBO International’s annual conference and exhibition. The 2022 conference will be held in October in Portland.

Kimneye Cox, director of business services for the Ascension Parish School Board, was one of two Louisiana women to win the scholarship. Fred Marsalis Jr., business manager of the Concordia Parish School Board, also won a scholarship.

“ASBO International is committed to supporting promising new school business professionals in their development to become our leaders of tomorrow,” said ASBO International Executive Director David Lewis. “The Emerging Leaders Fellowship offers these relatively new school affairs leaders the opportunity to benefit early on from focused professional development and a network of mentors who can guide them now and in the future.”

“We are proud to support the 2022 Emerging Leaders Scholarship,” says Don Wiley, Vice President and National Director of Affinity Market Relations for Security Benefits. “As a company that has focused on supporting educational leadership for over 60 years, we recognize the importance of ensuring that our school business leaders have the support and training they need to leading our schools into the future.”
