Nominations Sought for Greenblatt Awards

January 28, 2004
Nominations are being sought for the annual Marian Greenblatt Education Awards. Three veteran teachers in Montgomery County will each be given a $1,000 check and a plaque for excellent performance in motivating their students to achieve.
The annual veteran awards started in 1989. Since 1998, three awards have been made each year. In addition, one first-year teacher will be honored with a $500 award. This is the eighth year that new teachers are being recognized.

The committee selecting the winners is composed of current and former teachers who seek to recognize those teachers who make a significant difference in their students’ lives. They give public credit to those teachers who exemplify Marian Greenblatt's views that the classroom teacher is the centerpiece of the education system and that the master teacher needs appropriate recognition and encouragement.

Dr. Greenblatt was a member of the Montgomery County Board of Education from 1976 to 1984 and its president from 1978-1979. She served as director of the Presidents Academic Fitness Award Program from 1984 until her death in 1988.

Nominations are due March 15, 2004, and winners of the awards will be announced in April.

In addition to the awards to teachers, the fund annually recognizes one outstanding junior in each high school with a $100 award for proficiency in social studies and sponsors a tutoring program at Viers Mill Elementary School.
