Palos Verdes Peninsula Rotary Club Educator of the Year Award Presentation!

Palos Verdes Peninsula Rotary Club Educator of the Year Award Presentation!

Palos Verdes Peninsula Rotary Club will be honoring nine outstanding local teachers virtually, at their Educator of the Year award presentation on Thursday, February 4, 2021, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. This forty year tradition will be missing their traditional gala dinner, but this is a critical year to highlight educators who are working tirelessly online, in hybrid format, and in person according to Palos Verdes Peninsula Rotary Club, President Eileen Hupp. The teachers being honored are the role models that help lead the way to inspire and guide our children.

Every year, a group of schools select an Educator of the Year for this event. This year the honorees are as following: Lydia Cordova – Ridgecrest Intermediate School, Michelle Slattery – Palos Verdes Peninsula High School, Kristy Spencer – Rancho Vista Elementary School, Bonnie Roth – Dapplegray Elementary School, Captain Joy Groenleer – College for Officer Training at the Salvation Army, Jose Rincon – Marymount California University, Chris Meisel – Chadwick School, Christy Burden – Peninsula Heritage School and Jonny Brammah – Rolling Hills Prepatory and Rennaissance Schools.

The community is invited to support the Rotary Club’s scholarship program by purchasing a ticket to the virtual event or making a tax deductible donation. Scholarship applications are available at all high schools and their seniors are encouraged to apply for the Club’s 2021 College Scholarships. To date they have raised over $410,000 for need based college and vocational scholarships for students.

Ticket prices are $20, and buyers will be provided with the viewing link and information by noon on February 4th, 2021,  via the email address provided at time of purchase. To purchase tickets click here.
