The Kent County Education Association (KCEA) will once again be awarding student scholarships to deserving students, along with teacher and support staff awards to those exceptional individuals who make a difference in the education community.
For the past 26 years, the KCEA has sponsored the “Teacher Recognition” and “Top Support Staff” Campaign in honor of Teacher Day School Family Day. The event recognizes teachers and support staff who exhibit excellence in their job performance and have demonstrated leadership and service to the education community.
In addition, eight $500 scholarships are awarded to deserving students who meet the criteria set forth by the KCEA screening committee and have shown involvement and leadership in school and community activities.
The event will be held at the Bluff Banquet Center at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 5. For more information, please contact Ted O’Dell at KCEA, (616) 957-1944.
Local winners of this year’s event are:
