Just a few days remain to nominate an educator for Gila County’s K-12 Teacher of the Year award.

Anyone may nominate a deserving teacher who has gone the extra mile to change the course of their students’ lives. The winner receives a $500 award, honorary plaque and recognition.

Professional educators from public and charter schools who have made an academic contribution to Gila County students in Globe, Miami, San Carlos, Hayden-Winkelman, Payson, Pine-Strawberry, Tonto Basin and Young/Pleasant Valley are eligible.

The deadline is April 30; forms are available at the Gila County School Superintendent of Schools office, 1400 E. Ash St. in Globe — or by calling staff at 928-402-8784.
