During the Nov. 19, 2019 school board meeting, Assistant Superintendent Chris Gardea recognized five outstanding teachers for being named Golden Onion award recipients. Each of these educators received $1000 to use for classroom expenses and professional development. Mike and Sue Gillespie established the Golden Onion award nine years ago to support teacher development. Teachers are selected through a competitive application process.
