Fourteen Cherokee County School District teachers have been honored as this year’s Golden Apple Award winners!
The Gamma Eta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International presents the annual awards to one teacher from each selected school; honorees are chosen by their colleagues in recognition of distinctive service, enthusiasm, initiative and expertise. The School District is divided into three sets of schools for the awards, and, each year, the chapter invites one set of schools to select an honoree for each of their schools.
This year’s honorees are: Ardis Lussier, Boston ES; Dawn Mathis, Carmel ES; Wesley Queen, Cherokee HS; Jackie Pelfrey, Clark Creek ES STEM Academy; Katie Dobson, Clayton ES; Sally Naporano, Creekview HS; Carrie Barie, Dean Rusk MS; Jennifer Brewer, Freedom MS; Barb Clark, Hasty ES Fine Arts Academy; Kelli Cook, Hickory Flat ES; Tammie Rice, Holly Springs ES STEM Academy; Tracie Jordan, Liberty ES; Megan Mayfield, Little River ES; and Dana Townsend, Mill Creek MS.
Each honoree was presented a golden marble apple as part of the ceremony, which was attended by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower.
Delta Kappa Gamma Society International is a professional organization of women educators whose vision is “Leading Women Educators Impacting Education Worldwide.”
The event also included the presentation of the organization’s $1,500 college scholarship to a future educator to Morgan Reeg, a Woodstock High School Class of 2019 graduate, who will attend Kennesaw State University in the fall to study early childhood education.
