Project Excellence Winners

Congratulations to J.F. Burns Elementary ESL teacher, Karin Gonzalez, and South Lebanon Elementary 1st grade teacher, Abby Burroughs who have been named winners of this year’s Project Excellence Award, sponsored by the Area Progress Council of Warren County.

Every year, the APC seeks to honor two innovative or excellent teachers from each Warren County school. Community members and staff are encouraged to nominate teachers for these awards. Mrs. Burroughs and Mrs. Gonzalez will be honored at the 32nd annual APC recognition banquet scheduled for May 1 at the Warren County Career Center.

The Area Progress Council – a countywide private business organization – started Project Excellence in 1988 as a way to honor and recognize excellent educators. APC solicited funds to create an over $1 million endowment for this recognition program. Since its inception, Project Excellence has honored over 650 educators and awarded $500,000. This year's honorees will be given $500 for personal use and $250 to their district for a classroom or district-wide project.

Congratulations on this great honor, ladies!
