Klawiter receives lifetime achievement award
PLATTEVILLE - Richard "Dick" Klawiter, chair of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Industrial Studies Department in the College of Business, Industry, Life Science and Agriculture (BILSA), was recently recognized with a Lifetime Achievement Award. The Wisconsin School Safety Coordinators Association (WSSCA), of which Klawiter has been involved since 1968, honored him at the 38th annual School Safety Conference, held on Monday, Feb. 27 at the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells.
Although Klawiter is an advisor to the board of directors for WSSCA, the rest of the board managed to keep the award secret from him until they sprung it on him during their annual business meeting at the conference. Klawiter was indeed surprised at receiving this award on Monday.
"It was certainly a surprise. I was shocked," he said.
WSSCA has never given an award like this in 38 years, and it was, in fact, created specifically for Klawiter. The plaque that he received states that the award is "in recognition of a lifetime of commitment to improving the safety and health of Wisconsin Schools. Now that the award has been created, it will continue to be given, but Jodi Traas, president of WSSCA, said it will probably not be given every year, and it will be hard to find another person equally deserving.
Klawiter has been part of the association since its beginning, serving in many positions, including president, and now acts as advisor. Klawiter said his current role "is sort of an official historian, the person with the most longevity.

Klawiter received a Bachelor of Science degree from UW-Eau Claire in 1968 and earned his Master of Science in Education from Central Missouri State College in 1972. When he first came to UWP, he taught in the traffic safety program and later taught courses in the safety management and business administration areas. He also assisted UW-Platteville's extended degree program in business administration, a print-based distance learning program. Now, in addition to being the chair of the Industrial Studies Department, Klawiter serves as the assistant dean of BILSA.
Klawiter added that as professor, he always sought ways to incorporate what he learned at the annual WSSCA conferences. Now, as chair and dean, he passes on what he learns to current teachers and administration at the Platteville Area School District and professors at the university.
WSSCA, founded in 1968, is an association of professionals dedicated to the task of improving safety, health and wellness in Wisconsin's schools. WSSCA is a non-profit and non-government organization that includes administrators, supervisors, teachers, building and grounds personnel, health and nursing personnel, safety coordinators, school districts, as well as private and public businesses through district, corporate and student memberships. An 11 member Board of Directors conducts the business of the association with guidance from several advisors.
Klawiter resides in Platteville with his wife, Anne.
