Cañon City School Board President Larry Oddo was presented with a 2019 McGuffy Award for outstanding service

This presentation read as follows:

"Larry Oddo has served the Cañon City school board for eight years, including the last four as president. A one-time accountant and a current business operator, Mr. Oddo’s talents were key to Cañon City’s navigation of negative factor budget cuts related to the Great Recession. Under his guidance, Cañon City Schools kept its focus on providing valued programs for students while retaining the great people necessary to effectively educate them. In the past several years Mr. Oddo was instrumental in the success of both an override and bond question providing funds necessary to implement a one-to-one technology initiative, upgrade 5 school buildings, replace two schools, and providing make-up experience steps to loyal employees whose pay was frozen as a result of the recession."

Thanks to Mr. Oddo’s influence, the Cañon City School District is fully accredited and the entire community is focused on preparing students for evolving careers!

Congratulations Mr. Oddo!
