William "Bill" Lovett served as President of Arizona Association for School Business Officials (AASBO) for the 1974-75 term, was the first Executive Director of the organization, and Business Manager of the Mesa Unified School District.

AASBO set up the Memorial Award shortly after the death of Bill Lovett, and it has been presented each year to an outstanding member for his/her contribution to the organization.

Recipients are nominated in writing by the membership and voted on by the AASBO Board of Directors.  The nominees must be of "Hall of Fame" quality, demonstrating longevity, exhibiting dedication and service to AASBO over the years. 

A big congratulations goes to Bill Munch, CPPB, CPPO; Executive Director of Procurement, Compliance, Outreach and Education for Valley Schools, on receiving this award which was presented to him at the annual AASBO Summer Conference this past July 2018 in Tucson, AZ.  Bill is known throughout the school districts as being the guru of all things procurement.  Congratulations Bill on an award well deserved.
