On May 8th, 2015, the Best Western Wayside Inn banquet room was host for the WRPS Recognition Night Dinner in which educators, WRPS staff and community organizations and individuals were recognized for their outstanding efforts in the education of our region’s young people.
After a wonderful beef and chicken buffet style dinner, presentations began with the Community Recognition Awards. Scott Hall as well as Hope Mission (received by Kevin Schular) were this year’s recipients.
The prestigious Edwin Parr Nominations went to Shelby Bend of Buck Mountain Central and Caitlyn Klinger of Ecole Parkdale School. Outstanding employee Contribution To Education Awards went to Christine Breitkreuz of Ecole Parkdale and Annie Smith of Millet’s Griffiths-Scott School. Service awards were then presented to individuals who have logged 20 years, 25, 30 and two 35 year awards.
