Mark E. Ulfers Leadership Award 2013

Each year at their annual Worldfest, Frankfurt International School award the “Mark E. Ulfers Leadership Award” to an individual who has made an impact on the school community through his or her leadership.  This can be a faculty or staff member, a student or a parent.

The award in 2013 went to Kenny Macaulay, who spent five years at the school.

During those years he was involved in numerous ways in improving the level of cooperation and collaboration among the faculty and the administration, such as the establishment  of the Sports Management Group.  He showed strong leadership with parents and students going beyond the day-to-day coaching and athletics organisation.  He worked on a strategy entitled “We will develop and implement plans to improve the physical, social and emotional well-being of all FIS community members”.  And finally, we were told, his leadership extends beyond FIS.  He is a leading member of the ISST Executive Committee that coordinates top level varsity spots tournaments throughout Europe.
