Each year the Greater Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce presents the Crystal Apple Awards to outstanding educators, administrators and support staff of local schools in Hillsboro. Award nominees are nominated by their peers, parents and students based on their efforts to:
- Promote and model life-long learning as key to students’ future success.
- Develop and promote strategies that actively engage students for higher academic achievement.
- Build positive, trusting and respectful relationships with diverse students, families, fellow staff members and the community.
- Promote involvement and partnership between school, home and business.
Up to three individuals in each category are then selected by the nomination committee to receive the coveted Crystal Apple Award at the awards dinner. The unveiling of the awards is always an exciting affair. Along with lots of laughter, there are always a few tears shed because of the impact these educators have on our community.
