It is with tremendous enthusiasm that Warren County Public Schools announces the winners of the May Golden Apple Award. Todd Hazel, the Student Services Director for WCPS, Stephen Young, the assistant principal of Natcher Elementary and bus drivers Edie Lowe and Lisa Updegraff were chosen from a pool of more than a dozen nominees. Each of these individuals comes highly recommended by the their co-workers, supervisors, building principals, and parent communities.
The Golden Apple Awards Program is a Warren County Public Schools staff recognition initiative. Each month throughout the academic year, two teachers and two support staff members are recognized for their exemplary service to the district and its students. The monthly awards are given to those who go above and beyond their normal job requirements, demonstrating an on-going and high level of commitment to their job, their district, their students, and their fellow employees.
Winners of the WCPS Golden Apple Awards receive a unique, handmade award created by glass artist William VanTassel, as well as a gift card donated by the Rafferty’s Group. The program is made possible thanks to the generosity of these sponsors, as well as Tim Kanaly and Gary Force Honda.
