Ann Majestic, former National School Boards Association (NSBA) Council of School Attorneys (COSA) Chair and COSA Lifetime Achievement Award winner, died on August 16, 2014.
Ann dedicated her life to improving education – and special education in particular – in North Carolina where she represented several school boards, including the Wake, Durham, Orange, Alamance-Burlington, and Moore school systems. She also served as counsel to the North Carolina School Boards Association and the North Carolina Psychologists’ Association.
Ann was elected to the COSA Board of Directors in 1991, and served as the Chair from spring of 1998 to spring of 1999. In 2012, Ann was awarded COSA’s Lifetime Achievement Award for her outstanding service to the school law community and her leadership in legal advocacy on behalf of public schools.
“Ann was a respected leader in the school law community and a powerful advocate for public schools,” said NSBA General Counsel Francisco M. Negrón, Jr. “We will miss her leadership, her intellect, her grace, and her kindness.”
