Nominees sought for 2024 Outstanding Employee and Educator awards

If you know of a teacher or other staff member who goes out of his or her way to help students and support our schools, please consider nominating them for an Outstanding Educator/Employee Award.

The school district will present the 2023-2024 awards for Outstanding Elementary Educator, Outstanding Secondary Educator and Outstanding Employee later this year.

You can nominate candidates for these awards from January 19 through February 29. Nominations can be submitted by parents/guardians, students and colleagues of Penn Manor staff members. Nominations will be accepted online only.

Last year’s honorees were Brian Wimer, head custodian at Martic Elementary, the Outstanding Employee of the Year; Julie Yoder, academic support teacher at Hambright Elementary, the Outstanding Elementary Educator of the Year; and Kimberly Frey, math teacher at Penn Manor High School, named Outstanding Secondary Educator

Please note that honorees from previous years are not eligible this year. Here is the list of past winners.

Here are an explanation of the awards and nomination guidelines.

The Outstanding Educator Awards should be based on a teacher’s ability to promote academic growth in her/his students and for outstanding pupil-teacher relationships. A person may nominate one elementary teacher, one secondary teacher or one teacher on each level. The nominee must currently be employed by Penn Manor School District.

Outstanding Employee Awards should be based on a staff member’s ability to support the educational program and the quality of his/her relationships with staff and students.  A person may nominate one elementary staff member, one secondary staff member or one employee on each level. The nominee must currently be employed by Penn Manor.

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge the hard work of our employees!
