There is still time to nominate someone special for a GEM award as the deadline has been extended to Monday, February 11. Sponsored by Roush Honda and Westerville Parent Council, the annual GEM awards, which stands for Great Educator Mentors in Westerville Schools, honors community members, volunteers, teachers and staff who go above and beyond for students in Westerville schools.
Award winners are selected for each school in the district by building committee. Additionally, awards are given for those who serve in an extraordinary way in more than one building or across the entire district.
This year’s GEM award recipients will be recognized during a special session of the Westerville Board of Education on Monday, April 29 at 7:00 p.m. in the Westerville North High School auditorium, located at 950 County Line Road. This special session is open to the public, who are encouraged to attend and help celebrate those who do so much for so many.
