The first award Mr. Germain received was the 2013-14 Paul B. Bell Award, which recognizes a current member of ASBO MD-DC who has demonstrated exemplary contributions to schools, community, and ASBO. The recipient exhibits a special commitment to the children and taxpayers of Maryland and the District of Columbia. The Paul B. Bell Award is established by the Association of School Business Officials of Maryland and the District of Columbia to commemorate Paul's dedication and affection for ASBO and his contribution to Howard County Public Schools. Paul Bell was a long-time member of ASBO-MD&DC and served as President from 1993 to 1994.
 
Mr. Germain also received the 2014-15 Faye Miller Leadership Award.  Each year, ASBO MD-DC awards the Fay Miller Education Leadership Eagle Institute scholarship to ASBO International's Eagle Institute, a four day learning experience taught by highly regarded professionals in the field.  Taught through a historical lens, this program explores issues of school business management and leadership, and is held at various locations of great historical significance, for example, Gettysburg, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.  The Fay Miller Education Leadership Eagle Institute Award is made annually to an ASBO MD-DC member in recognition of Fay’s exemplary service to education, commitment to excellence, and demonstrated leadership skills in the belief that her career serves as an inspiration to all school business professionals.  The scholarship award covers Institute registration, hotel accommodations, all conference meals, and travel costs - a value of in excess of $2,000.00.  Fay Miller, the inspiration for this award, served as Assistant Superintendent of Administrative Services for the Kent County Public Schools for 22 years and has been a member of ASBO MD-DC since 1982 and ASBO International since 1986.
