Collier County Honors Outstanding Educators
The Education Foundation of Collier County held its annual Golden Apple Awards gala last week at the Phil in Naples, Florida. Only one word for the honorees: INSPIRING. I walked away feeling uplifted, optimistic and with a renewed sense of dedication to my work. The Golden Apple Award recipients are among the most gracious and humble people you could ever hope to encounter. They made me wish I could return to school again! The families of Collier County Public Schools are indeed blessed to have such dedicated educators and administrators. The community is stronger because of the work of the teachers and support organizations such as the Education Foundation.
The Education Foundation works with the schools to provide special scholarships, classroom support, and professional development for the teachers. They are embarking on new programs with new opportunities for supporting the work. Take a look at their website and contact Susan McManus to learn more about how you can help the cause for improving children’s lives – for life! You may find that philanthropy will solve some of your problems at the same time!
