Dr. Jeff B. Mills Risk Management Award

The Dr. Jeff B. Mills Risk Management Award is given to an Oklahoma Schools Risk Management Trust member in recognition of their leadership in education and initiatives with risk management.

Read more about the award by clicking here.

The Oklahoma State School Boards Association endorses the Oklahoma Schools Risk Management Trust (OSRMT). As an alternative to commercial insurance, OSRMT allows member public schools to come together and jointly self-insure against the property and casualty exposures they face today. OSRMT is governed by public school officials in Oklahoma.

OSRMT was established to help combat the high cost of traditional property/casualty insurance. Today the OSRMT provides competitively priced property/casualty coverage to school districts across the state and delivers service that is second to none.
