2019 Lakota Educator of Excellence Awards

March 4, 2019

The Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty, in partnership with Lakota Local Schools, is currently accepting nominations for the 2019 Lakota Educator of Excellence Awards.

The award is made possible through generous sponsorship from Phelan Insurance Agency. Two monetary awards will be presented: one to a recipient from the elementary level (PreK-6) and another from the secondary level (7-12). The winners will receive a $1,000 grant to be used for a special project at their school. The third, non-monetary award, will be presented to a Lakota administrator who has shown extraordinary commitment to the students and teachers of Lakota Local Schools as well as the community.

The Lakota Educator of Excellence Award was established in 2007 to recognize educators in the Lakota School District who demonstrate consistency and high commitment to students. These individuals motivate, share ideas, inspire, support, create, and go above and beyond to make a difference in the community.

Outstanding educators can be nominated to receive this honor by students, colleagues, parents or any community member who wishes to acknowledge an educator’s exceptional effort. Nominations are not limited to classroom teachers. Award recipients may be any person (teacher, administrator, counselor, support staff, etc.) working with young people in the Lakota School District. Winners are chosen by a committee of representatives from Lakota Local Schools and the Community Foundation

Nominations are due Friday, April 5th.  Visit to submit a nomination form.

Questions may be directed to Karen Gibbs at the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty – or 513.682.8061
