Brown wins Golden Apple
Thomson High School English teacher Christy Brown was awarded the Golden Apple Award by Channel 6 News on Tuesday, April 18. The Golden Apple Award honors those who believe in the true spirit of teaching by making classrooms a fun and safe place of learning. Teachers are nominated by students. McDuffie County Schools Superintendent Dr. Mark Petersen and his wife accompanied Ms. Brown and her husband to a black-tie reception and ceremony at the Maxwell Performing Arts Center at the Augusta State Campus on Tuesday, April 11.
"We really enjoyed ourselves. It was a very nice affair, kind of fancy-dancy. It was a great way to recognize our educators. ...I'd like to see more McDuffie County Golden Apples next year," Dr. Petersen said.
The ceremony will be televised from 7 until 8 p.m. tonight on Channel 6.
