Athens City Schools Foundation

A Nonprofit Organization Supporting Teachers and Students



  • The 2nd Annual Teacher of the Year Gratitude Banquet proved to again be a huge success!  With the help of the 154 guests in attendance, each Teacher of the Year was highlighted and honored for outstanding dedication and professionalism.  Due to the generosity of our event sponsors, each teacher was given a beautiful golden apple to display on their desk and $200.  The secondary and elementary district-level award winners were given an extra $100, a trophy, and a dozen roses to enjoy during the Thanksgiving season.

    Sincere thanks are expressed to everyone involved in helping give these teachers the recognition and special treatment they deserve.
