The recipients and their families were treated to a special reception prior to being recognized at the school board meeting held April 1.
“We are proud to honor these exceptional people for their dedication to our students and patrons,” said Jennifer Seal, president of the Foundation. Seal also expressed her gratitude to Independent Insurance Agents of Greater Oklahoma City for sponsoring this and other recognition programs for district teachers and staff.
The Golden Apple is awarded annually to individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to excellence in education. It is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon patrons and staff in the Putnam City School District.
