SSP Educational Foundation Presents the 2014 Silver Apple Awards
 
  
 

Julie Casillas, a third grade teacher at Lincoln Center and Mary Lesch, Early Childhood Special Education Coordinator were presented the 17th Annual “Roxanne Bliss Silver Apple Award” from the South St. Paul Educational Foundation. Julie Casillas was nominated by Malia Meyer. Mary Lesch was nominated by her ECSE team, Alexander Hagen, and Adam Kriesel.

Don Bliss, SSP Class of 1950, established the Silver Apple Award in honor of his wife, Roxanne Waldhauser Bliss, SSP Class of 1951. This award was created to encourage students to appreciate educators or support staff who are especially important to them. It is their belief that school employees play a very instrumental role in the future success of students. Students nominate a teacher or other employee who made a significant difference in their lives. Award recipients received a silver apple commemorating the award, as well as a cash stipend.  

Congratulations to Julie and Mary!
