Congratulations to Kings High and Junior High School Music Teacher, Brian McDonough and J.F. Burns Elementary School 1st grade teacher, Emily Roewer 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. Mr. McDonough and Mrs. Roewer will be honored at the 34th annual APC recognition banquet on May 5, 2021.
Mr. McDonough has taught at music Kings for 9 years. He is also the Director of the Kings Marching Band.
Mrs. Roewer has taught in the Kings School District for 11 years. She is also a Kings graduate!
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 prestigious honor!
