From the Cherokee County School District
Outstanding teachers from the Cherokee County School District have been honored with Golden Apple Awards.
The Gamma Eta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, an international society of women educators, presents the awards at its annual Golden Apples Ceremony.
Each year, about one-third of the district's schools are invited to select a Golden Apple teacher, who is chosen by his/her peers for outstanding contributions to education.
This year’s ceremony was held at E.T. Booth Middle School on Tuesday, May 13, and each winner was presented with a marble apple.
In addition, Gamma Eta presented its annual Mimi Jo Butler Memorial Scholarship to Ali Baker, a Cherokee HS graduating senior, who plans to pursue a degree in education.
