More than 100 teachers in the Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township were recently honored for making a difference in the lives of their students.
In the annual Seniors’ Choice Awards, high school seniors in the district chose the teachers who have had the greatest impact on their academic careers. The selected teachers were then honored with a banquet and awards ceremony at Ben Davis High School.
The teachers honored got an opportunity to read comments made by the students who had honored them.
Some of the teachers received their first Seniors’ Choice Award this year. Others have received it almost every year of their careers in MSD Wayne.
John Benjamin, Demetrius Dowler and Diane Rowe have each won the award 10 or more times. MiSang Han, Evelyn Riley, Rhonda Mercer and Roy Streater have each won it 15 or more times. And John Davis, Mark E. Montgomery, William Gilmartin and Kevin O’Day have each won it 20 or more times.
The Seniors’ Choice Awards are presented by the Wayne Township Education Foundation, the MSD of Wayne Township School Board, and MSD Wayne Superintendent Jeff Butts.
