Superintendent Matthew Mingle says, “Warren Township Schools benefit from the dedication of talented educators day in and day out. This year’s recipients of the Excellence in Education recognition exemplify this commitment.”

The Warren Township Board of Education will award each of the recipients a $500 grant to be used toward an educational purchase for her classroom. The honorees will also be recognized at a countywide program on June 5 and the June 8 Warren Township Board of Education meeting.
