R. A. Horn Honorary Life Membership Award

In 1961 OSPA decided to establish an award that would recognize the contributions of retiring members. The award was to be presented to members or nonmembers who had contributed significantly to the field of school psychology and who continued to demonstrate an interest in the profession. The award is not given every year, but since 1961 OSPA has presented the award to numerous individuals. In 1998 the OSPA Executive Board voted to rename the award the R.A. Horn Honorary Life Membership Award in honor of the man who greatly affected the development and direction of school psychology in Ohio.
