Dawn Smith awarded K-12 Foundation Golden Apple

The K-12 Foundation for LHUSD#1 presented the Sherry Dailey Golden Apple Award for January, 2015 to Dawn Smith. Mrs. Smith teaches 7th Grade English at Thunderbolt Middle School and also serves as the Department Chairman.

The Golden Apple Award was created by K-12 community partners Hair Productions, Shugrue's Family of Restaurants, Havasu Fitness, The Human Bean, and Schlotsky's. Those businesses wanted to recognize and reward the dedication of educators in our school district. They have joined with the K-12 Foundation for LHUSD #1 in creating the Sherry Dailey Golden Apple Award. The award recognizes a person who is outstanding in his or her area of education expertise and who exhibits selfless dedication to the highest ideals of providing the best possible educational environment for their students.
