Each building Teacher of the Year and Staff of the Year were recognized at the Mt. Vernon Education Foundation (MVEF) Gala. The district Teacher of the Year and the district Staff of the Year were announced at the MVEF Gala. Congratulations to this year’s district Teacher of the Year, Dianne Grannan, and the Staff of the Year, Jay Jones. We want to congratulate and commemorate each building winner and especially the district winners for you and your dedication!
Each year Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation partners with the Mt. Vernon Education Foundation to recognize a Teacher of the Year (TOY) and Staff of the Year (SOY) in each building. Staff members rate those who they nominated on the qualities of dedication, team player, caring, student-centered, lifelong learner and innovative. The TOY and SOY for each building have been decided and we hope you join in congratulating those who have exemplified the previously listed qualities.
