A Cherokee High School student has received a scholarship for future educators, and 12 Cherokee County School District teachers were honored with Golden Apple Awards last week from the Gamma Eta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International.
The organization of active and retired female CCSD educators presented Camille Janawitz, a senior at Cherokee High, with its $1,500 college scholarship. Janawitz is a member of the school’s Band of Warriors and served as a section leader this school year. She has performed onstage in many of the school’s theatre productions and also works in customer service at Publix.
Twelve CCSD schools were invited to recognize an honoree this year, and they are: Katelyn Sugar of Arnold Mill Elementary School, Beth Smith of Ball Ground Elementary School STEM Academy, Laura Wagner of Bascomb Elementary School, Liane Moler of E.T. Booth Middle School, Heather Barton of Etowah High School, Lacy Savage of Free Home Elementary School, Morgann Anderson of Indian Knoll Elementary School, Meredith Rocker of Johnston Elementary School, Janet Marotte of Knox Elementary School STEM Academy, Kristin Covington of Mountain Road Elementary School, Stephanie Collett of R.M. Moore Elementary School STEM Academy, Rachel LaChine of Sequoyah High School.
“Our goal is to recognize exemplary educators in our school district,” said CCSD Instructional Technology Specialist Dixie Harper, president of the Gamma Eta Chapter Delta Kappa Gamma. “Over the last 23 years, we have had the privilege of honoring outstanding educators from each of our District’s existing schools.”
