BROWN COUNTY – Each year, an evening is set aside to highlight the above-and-beyond efforts of teachers and teaching teams throughout Brown County.
The 29th annual Golden Apple Awards, hosted by Greater Green Bay Chamber, was held April 20, at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center to again extend those honors.
“It is inspiring to see our community gather to recognize so many high-quality educators,” Eric Vanden Heuvel, the Chamber’s vice president of Talent and Education, said.
Vanden Heuvel said the annual event recognizes educators for their role in shaping the futures of their students.
Five hundred people were in attendance for the fully in-person event April 20, including finalists and recipients, school superintendents, principals, Chamber staff and friends and colleagues of the nominated and selected teachers.
“We always appreciate what they do for our students, but it is wonderful to celebrate them publicly,” Vanden Heuvel said.
Each recipient was introduced by emcee Michelle Melby from Fox 11, which was followed by a short video presentation highlighting their accomplishments.
