---- — Thanks for help honoring teachers



Wednesday evening, May 8, was certainly a special one for members of the Vigo County School Corp. community.

The Vigo County Education Foundation, along with title sponsors NBC-2, Kelly Educational Staffing, Terre Haute Savings Bank, and Union Hospital Health Group, hosted the 27th annual “Excellence in Education” banquet at Providence Hall on the beautiful Saint Mary-of-the-Woods campus.  

The purpose of the event was to recognize and thank 34 of the best educators in the Vigo County School Corp. for the excellent work they do. Attendees at the banquet included the award winners, their principals, their families and teachers from their school families and numbered more than 500 people.

The Board of Directors of the Vigo County Education Foundation would like to thank those title sponsors, as well as table sponsors, Bayh College of Education, Rose-Hulman Homework Hotline, Conservatory of Music, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, Duke Energy, Spence Banks, Gretchen Bauer Jennermann, Sycamore Insurance Associates and the Tribune-Star.

Thanks include the Tulip Co., who provided flowers for the tables, Tom Goss of Indiana Business Equipment for printing, Sydney Benter of WTWO, who served as the evening’s emcee, and Lifetouch National School Studios for photography.

A community that provides such outstanding recognition to its educators is one to be applauded. Thank you for your continuing support.
