These individuals’ contributions helped fund Challenge Day for our Middle School students here in Washington Township. Without their generous contributions we would not have been able to proceed with this important activity for some of middle school students.




Sharon McCarthy – Teacher North Central High School

Mrs. McCarthy is the recipient of the 2015 INTESOL (Indiana Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) Best of the Best K-12 Educator Award. She was given the award at the State Conference.

Holly May – Teacher Westlane Middle School

Holly was nationally recognized at the 18th Annual School Band and Orchestra Conference for the difference she makes in the lives of her students each and every day. It is quite an honor for Holly to be selected for the Indiana “50 Directors Who Make A Difference Award”. School Band and Orchestra magazine features one director from each state in the December issue each year. This is always a very inspirational issue to read as you truly see the best and the brightest educators recognized. Reading the comments from those directors each year is an education in itself for young teachers throughout our nation. My favorite quote from Holly in the magazine was “I strive to teach them to enjoy the process of learning how to play an instrument. If students can develop self-discipline skills in band class, it will transfer to other areas in their lives.”
