Michele Duncan, a Sunset Hill Elementary School teacher, was presented the 2018 Special Award for Excellence in Teaching by the Lawrence Schools Foundation at an all-school assembly Thursday afternoon. The award, commonly known as the Bobs Award, includes a $10,000 check for the recipient.
More than $58,000 in scholarships managed by the Lawrence Schools Foundation were awarded to seniors at Free State and Lawrence High School this month.
Nominations are being accepted for the most prestigious teaching award provided through the Lawrence Schools Foundation. Community members, parents, students, alumni and fellow teachers are encouraged to submit a nomination of a Lawrence Public Schools teacher for the annual $10,000 Bobs Award.
The Lawrence Schools Foundation is awarding its 2018 Innovative Teaching Grants through April and May. The Foundation is recognizing six recipients and providing $14,800 to teachers and staff, who applied for these annual grants. We will update this page as we present checks to the recipients so check back here to see the projects.
