Congratulations to Columbia Intermediate School Teachers Tracy Kleis and Holly Mueller, winners of this year’s Project Excellence Award, sponsored by the Area Progress Council of Warren County.

‚ÄčEvery year, two teachers from each Warren County school are chosen for this special award. Community members and staff are encouraged to nominate teachers for these awards. Mrs. Kleis and Mrs. Mueller will be honored at the 29th annual  APC recognition banquet scheduled for May 4 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 a $1 million endowment for this recognition program. Since its inception, Project Excellence has honored more than 576 educators and awarded $458,800. Honorees are given $600 for personal use and $300 for their district for a classroom or district-wide project.

Last year’s Progress Excellence winners were CIS 6th grade teacher Ken Johnson and  SLE Intervention Specialist Cindy Null.
