He distinguished himself as a teacher and administrative leader in the Grant Union High School District, and then became Personnel Administrator in the San Juan Unified School District. Mr. Curry was committed to the success of ACSA and extended that commitment to the area of Personnel Administration/Human Resources within the organization, and across the state of California. He also served as the chief Personnel Administrator for the Los Rios Community College District.

Ray Curry was involved and participated in all aspects of Personnel Administration/Human Resources. He was Assistant Executive Director for ACSA, Executive Director for the American Association of School Personnel Administrators and because of his concern for those in the field and others who might be coming into the field; he created and developed the ACSA Personnel Academy, Personnel Institute and Negotiators’ Symposium.

Because of the aforementioned, the annual award for excellence in Personnel Administration presented each year at the Personnel Institute is presented to the individual who most exemplifies the meaning of Personnel Administrator; Mr. Ray Curry.
