We send our sincere congratulations to Ashley Williams of William Byrd Middle School for her achievements in teaching that led to her winning this year’s Golden Apple Award! The Golden Apple Award is the highest honor that can be presented to a teacher by the Roanoke Education Foundation. In addition, Williams will be Roanoke County Public School’s nominee for the Virginia Teacher of the Year Award. This year, Ashley won this honor from among 105 teachers who were nominated and 18 teachers were selected as semi-finalists.
First Team Subaru is proud to sponsor this event each year, by donating the use of a brand-new 2019 Subaru Ascent for one year, with custom license plates that read GR8-TCR (Great Teacher). We at the First Team Family believe in supporting our community as much as possible, and are excited for Ashley and all the winners of the Education Foundation’s awards: Red Apple winners Traci Altice – Second-grade teacher at Bonsack Elementary School, Jeffrey Maynard – Special Education teacher at Northside Middle School, Terry Haynie – Choir/music theory teacher at Glenvar High School, and Green Apple winner Kristen Sink. Thank you for all you do!
