Each year, our diocese recognizes outstanding faculty from our Catholic schools. We’re sure we have some of the best teachers and administrators here at Stark County Catholic Schools! If you know of a teacher, or principal, who has gone above and beyond that you feel deserves recognition, please nominate them for the Diocese of Youngstown’s Golden Apple Award.
Through the generosity and kindness of the Donahue Family Foundation, the Golden Apple Award program is again seeking nominations to honor outstanding individuals who devote their lives to teaching in Catholic schools. This award is bestowed annually on four elementary teachers, two high school teachers, and one principal currently working at one of our schools.
Candidates must be a practicing Catholic, full-time teacher or principal and have completed a minimum of three full years teaching or being a principal in the elementary or secondary school at which he/she is currently serving.
Nominations are currently being accepted at the individual schools. The letter of nomination should explain why the nominator feels the individual deserves the Golden Apple Award and include specific examples of the individual’s unique qualities and teaching ability. Nominations are accepted from a parent, and elementary student with his/her parent, a high school student, or a fellow teacher. Please see the attached forms in this week's email. Completed nominations should be submitted to the school principal no later than February 1st.
