Not many teachers can say they've received a Golden Apple. The hard work and dedication of two local teachers are being recognized in a big way. Kelly Buss and Deb Schenk are two of the most recent recipients of the golden apple award from the Catholic Diocese of Toledo. The award was established to recognize those outstanding individuals who devote their lives to teaching in Catholic schools.
Buss has taught third and fourth grade at St. Charles for 20 years. She started there after she graduated college and has been there since. She was nominated for the award by a student and their parents who sent in an essay about how she goes above and beyond.
High School health and biology teacher Deb Schenk was extremely surprised when she found out that she won the Golden Apple Award. She said it's a reflection on her school and represents all the dedicated teachers.
These two teachers will be recognized at a June 6 celebration in Toledo.
