Archdiocese announces 10 Catholic school teachers receiving 2023 Golden Apple Award
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington recently announced the 10 local Catholic school teachers who have been named as 2023 Golden Apple Award winners. The teachers learned the news in surprise announcements at their schools between April 17 and 20.
The Golden Apple Award, giving annually to 10 Catholic school teachers in the Archdiocese of Washington 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. The teachers will be presented with their Golden Apple Awards on May 18.
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.
