2013 Apple Pin Awards

Apple Pins have been an award of gratitude given by the Board for quite some time.  This Award has recognized those that have gone above and beyond as parent and community volunteers, good neighbors of our schools, Student Board Representatives, and Blue Collar, White Collar, Confidential, Administrative, and Certificated employees.  A record of recipients was not started until 1992, but since then over 300 individuals have been awarded the Apple Pin.  This year, we honor the following seven exemplary employees:
