On Wednesday, April 24, 2018, friends colleagues and families met at the Phoenix Opera House in Rushville, IL, to honor those among us who make a difference. Each year, Region 12’s Crystal Apple Awards Banquet pays tribute those individuals who have made a significant contribution to education and the teaching profession. From retirees to administrators, volunteers to mentors, and from teachers to support staff, the people who impact our students and our profession are innumerable. Special thanks to Colin Ash of Horace Mann whose generous donations make this possible.
Thank you to everyone who attended, participated, presented, or received one of the Crystal Apple Awards. Your dedication to education is incredible! For more photos from the event, visit the IEA Region 12 Facebook page.
