Fall weather is in the air, and that means another school year is beginning.
After a year of distance learning for so many, students are happy to be back in their classes with their favorite teachers.
This season marks the 31st year that JET 24 and the University of Edinburgh present the Golden Apple Award to teachers in the community.
“This is an award that recognizes excellence, care and innovation. We are all educators, we have all struggled and we have all succeeded in one way or another in maintaining our mission of teaching our young people. said Dr. Dale-Elizabeth Pehrsson, president of the University of Edinboro.
Starting Wednesday, October 6, JET 24 Action News will present the first Golden Apple Award of the school year, honoring a teacher who demonstrates excellence in the classroom.
“Well I would say if you have this teacher who makes you laugh and makes you want to come to school and makes you enjoy learning, then your gift for this teacher would be to name him for a golden apple. “said Dr. Mary Jo Melvin, University of Edinboro.
