The David McCurrach Distinguished Service Award originated in 1974 and awards individuals who have tirelessly provided their time and insight in making a difference in today’s education marketplace. It is awarded by the Education Market Association (EDmarket)—a leading trade organization for the educational products marketplace. 

“I was fortunate early in my career to have amazing female role models in the education market. Those women mentored younger women and showed us how important it was to be involved in our association. It is a great honor to be recognized by the industry that I love. I stand on the shoulders of giants in our industry.” - Julie Ryno
