2022 Golden Apple Award winning teachers reflect on their work at local Catholic schools
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington recently announced the 10 local Catholic elementary school teachers who have been named as 2022 Golden Apple Award winners.
The Golden Apple Award, giving annually to 10 Catholic school teachers in the archdiocese for teaching excellence and dedication to Catholic education, is sponsored by the Donahue Family Foundation and includes a $5,000 check and a golden apple.
Jack and Rhodora Donahue, founders of the Pittsburgh-based foundation, sent their 13 children to Catholic schools. Eager to express their deep appreciation to Catholic school teachers for providing a quality academic and faith-filled education for their children, the Donahues through their foundation have established this award in five dioceses around the country.
