Heather Clements, Theresa Frazier Project Excellence Winners

Congratulations to South Lebanon Elementary 4th grade teacher, Heather Clements, and Kings Preschool Intervention Specialist, Theresa Frazier 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. Clements and Mrs. Frazier will be honored at the 33rd annual APC recognition banquet that will be held at a later date due to COVID-10.

Mrs. Frazier, an Intervention Specialist, has taught at Kings her whole career; 15 years. The first nine years at SLE and the past six at Kings Preschool.

Mrs. Clements has been teaching for 21 years. For the past 8 years, she has taught in Kings, first as an Intervention Specialist, and now as a 4th-grade teacher at SLE. 

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!
