The Beacon Award received its name because the individuals nominated for it "shine from behind the scenes" in their respective positions. An individual is nominated by each school and is recognized because of their dedication to their position, their profession, and to the children and staff of the district. Nominees are non-certified staff members such as secretaries, food service clerks, custodians, and bus drivers.
The Beacon Award winner receives $300, and each nominee receives $100 from the Chillicothe Educational Foundation.
