We are thrilled to announce our third Inspirational Educator Award winner, Marianne Lang. Marianne is an English teacher at Olympia High School and was nominated for the award by our 2017 first place scholarship winner Sarah Gindy. We surprised Mrs. Lang during one of her classes and had Sarah share the inspiration for her nomination.
Sarah shared the folloiwng from a letter written to Marianne:
“Mrs. Lang is not only an incredible teacher, but one of the best people I have ever met.”
“Her love for all of her students and her dedication to having genuine relationships with all of us as individuals is something that all of her current and former students admire and cherish.”
“She is always someone who encourages me to reach outside my comfort zone, whether that means applying for my first job, going to New Orleans, or pursuing my love of reading and writing for the rest of my life.”
“I am truly grateful and blessed to have Mrs. Lang in my life!”
Great job Mrs. Lang – you are a large part of why this community is such a great place to call home!
