The C.A.R.E. Task Force of the Garden City Area Chamber of Commerce has announced the six finalists for this year's Crystal Apple Teacher Recognition Program.
"Teachers educate and mold our future workforce," said Steve Dyer, Chamber president. "They work hard to insure students leave high school ready to enter the work force with basic skills needed to be productive in the workplace. We want to recognize teachers who go above and beyond to make that happen."
The 2013 finalists are: RoseMary Erives, Buffalo Jones Elementary School; Alexander Koning, Kenneth Henderson Middle School; Karen Kyler, Garfield Early Childhood Center; Summer Miller, Garden City High School, Kenneth Henderson Middle School and Horace Good Middle School; Tamillia Moore, Edith Scheuerman Elementary School; and Tammy Ueke, Victor Ornelas Elementary School.
The task force is made up of representatives from the business community. The program honors outstanding teachers in Finney County for their exceptional efforts in education.
The top three finalists will be named as the 2013 Crystal Apple Teachers of Finney County at a banquet on Nov. 21 at the Clarion Inn, 1911 E. Kansas Ave., and will receive an engraved crystal apple, $1,000 cash award and other prizes. The other three finalists will be presented with a cash award of $250. Reservations for the banquet are required by 5 p.m. Nov. 15. Cost is $25 per person, payable in advance to the Chamber of Commerce, 1511 E. Fulton Terrace.
