Ryan Fry, Excellence in Education Award




Again this year, MVCSC will partner with MVEF to recognize Mt. Vernon Teacher of the Year and Staff of the Year!  The program will recognize one Teacher of the Year winner from each building and one Staff member of the Year winner from each building including the admin building / Mini-Marauders / LIFE Center / district employees who serve multiple buildings.    

In 2018, Jill Prefontaine and her husband, Kevin, established the Ryan Fry Excellence in Education Award to recognize MVCSC District Teacher of the Year and Staff of the Year.  This award is in honor of her brother, Ryan.  A $2,500 award will be given to the district teacher of the year and the district staff member of the year.  Additionally, this year, each building winner will receive a $500 award.  Jill wanted to create this honor to “combine the love that she has for her brother and great teachers.”  Jill’s father, Kenneth, was a treasured math teacher for Mt. Vernon Community Schools for 30 years.
