Lincoln-Way Board of Education honors citizens at Extra Effort Award ceremony Friday, June 29, 2012
The Lincoln-Way High School District 210 Board of Education honored 9 adults and 4 students in the 20th annual Extra Effort Awards at a reception prior to the June 28 school board meeting. The reception was held in the lobby of the Fine Arts Auditorium at Lincoln-Way Central High School from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.
The adult recipients are: Jim and Barb Stellwagen; Steve Hogan; Randy Baum; Alan Spaeth; John Teerling; Will County Detective Sergeant Duane Davis; and Mark and Gayle Giovanazzi.
Student recipients are: Emily Rago from Lincoln-Way Central;' Ryan Smetana from Lincoln-Way East; Alexandra Horton from Lincoln-Way North; and Erica Crimmins from Lincoln-Way West.
"The awards are given to citizens who have shown exemplary 'school spirit.' They have gone above and beyond the active parent or community member. The persons selected for this district wide honor have truly put forth that "Extra effort" that makes Lincoln-Way High School District 210 the special school district that is it today," stated Dr. Lawrence A. Wyllie, superintendent, to the crowd of over 80 family members, friends and staff gathered in the lobby of the auditorium.
In 2005 the Lincoln-Way District 210 Extra Effort recognition program began honoring Lincoln-Way students as well as community members. Four students were chosen this year for the award.
"The students that were selected have demonstrated they go that 'extra mile' to help others and to make their school a better place for all students," noted the Superintendent.
