Chattanooga, TN (WDEF)- Tonight we held our annual Golden Apple Award banquet.
Congratulations to Jill Blackmon of East Lake Elementary for winning our Golden Apple Teacher of the Year.
The finalists were Christina Cryder of Alpine Crest Elementary and Sally Lesperance from Gilbert Elementary.
All of these teachers were recognized for all of their hard work and commitment.
I was just amazed to see what all these teachers brought into this room," said Jill Blackmon, East Lake Elementary, "The montage was so powerful to hear what all the teachers had to say about what they encounter every day when they go into the classrooms. And what a difference they are making."
Opening remarks were provided by Daryl Massey, Bi-Lo District Director, Phil Cox, General Manager, WDEF News 12 and Dr. Lee McDade, Assistant Superintendent of Hamilton County Schools.
