Arch Coal Foundation has awarded ten Wyoming classroom teachers the Arch Coal Teacher Achievement Award, Wyoming’s longest-running privately-sponsored teacher recognition programme.
"Each year, we are honored to recognize 10 outstanding Wyoming teachers with an Arch Coal Teacher Achievement Award," said John Eaves, Arch’s Chairman and CEO.
"Once again, this year's recipients are among the best of the best from around the state. They represent the many Wyoming educators who daily bring a sense of excitement to the classroom and a sense of purpose to the learning experience. We congratulate each of them for their ability to inspire and to encourage their students to reach ever-higher levels of achievement."
Each recipient received the award at a special assembly held in front of students and faculty at his or her individual school. Teachers are nominated by the public with winners selected by a panel of past winners.
"Teachers play a vital role in shaping the future. Their impact reaches not only their students and their school, but also their community and our state,” said Wyoming Superintendent of Public Instruction Jillian Balow.
“I'm so proud to have a multitude of excellent educators in Wyoming and grateful that Arch Coal has supported teachers through this award for generations. Arch Coal is a wonderful partner in education and in recognizing, even in difficult times, the significant and valuable contribution made by these teachers."
