Attorney Nancy L. Pirkey Receives Wisconsin School Attorneys Association George Tipler Award
WAUKESHA, WI (November 21, 2016) – Buelow Vetter Buikema Olson & Vliet Attorney, Nancy Pirkey, was recently recognized during the Wisconsin School Attorneys Association (WSAA) membership meeting and named a recipient of the 2016 George Tipler Award.
The Tipler Award honors the efforts of former Wisconsin Association of School Boards (WASB) Executive Director, George Tipler, who initiated the founding of the WSAA and was a long-serving advocate for the boys and girls in Wisconsin. Pirkey was nominated by school officials and member attorneys to receive this year’s Tipler Award because of her demonstration of high achievement and dedication to the representation of school districts in the state, and her receipt of this honor comes a few months after concluding her practice of law.
“It has been an absolute privilege to serve the needs of numerous school districts, boards, staff and students throughout Wisconsin,” said Pirkey. “I am grateful for the opportunity to have assisted our educational system in its efforts to enrich the lives of students through education. Thank you all for your friendship, collaboration and for this incredible honor.”
“We are exceptionally fortunate to have enjoyed Nancy’s many contributions as a shareholder, partner, colleague and friend,” said Mary Hubacher, Chair of Buelow Vetter Buikema Olson and Vliet. “We congratulate Nancy on her achievement and extend our heartfelt thanks for her service and commitment, not only to school law in our state, but our clients, fellow attorneys, colleagues and friends throughout her career.”
This is the second year in a row that an attorney from Buelow Vetter Buikema Olson and Vliet has received the George Tipler Award. Pirkey joins fellow attorney, Gary Ruesch, who was named the Tipler Award recipient in 2015.
