Every year BMUST honors one individual in each building as an “Outstanding Professional”. These colleagues are recognized for their professional excellence at our annual dinner in June.
The recipient of this award may include teachers, school counselors, psychologists, social workers, nurses and other members of our union. We are asking for your input in the selection process.
Please nominate a colleague by February 15 and also indicate the reason for your selection. All nominations should be returned to your Head Building Representative.
Please be assured that all correspondence will remain confidential.
We thank you for your cooperation.

Len Motisi Senior Scholarship
BMUST belongs to the Long Island Teachers’ Benevolent Fund (LITBF), which offers a yearly scholarship, (the Len Motisi Memorial Scholarship) to high school seniors graduating this year, who will be attending a post-secondary institution on a full time basis and whose parent is an active teacher in a Long Island local. Many of our members’ sons and daughters have been awarded this scholarship over the years.
The attached application must be sent back to me at the BMUST office no later than March 6, 2017 to get my signature on it and for me to send it to LITBF before the deadline of March 13, 2017. We are also putting these forms on our website, www.bmust.org. The application has a section that must be completed by your child’s Guidance Counselor. You must include the school transcript, with the current GPA on it and include a copy of the SAT or ACT scores. If the transcript does not contain the GPA, your Guidance Counselor must submit a statement with the scores. So please fill the form in as soon as possible and forward it to me through inter-office mail.
