Lindsay Chamberlain and James Clark from West Genesee High School; Emma Evanchak and Tyler Anastasio from Camillus Middle School; and Emilie Shoults and Eli Owens from West Genesee Middle School were honored by the Camillus Optimists with the David Kenna Outstanding Student Award.

Erin Hogan (West Genesee High School social studies teacher), Nancy Muldoon (Camillus Middle School health teacher), and Rebecca Gesser (Stonehedge Elementary School fourth-grade teacher) each received the 2018 Joseph A. Witowski Outstanding Teacher Award.

Honorees and their families were guests of the Optimists on November 5 at the Tuscarora Golf Club. School administrators introduced each honoree and described their unique contributions. Optimist David Philippone coordinated the program.

Teachers were selected by their peers for being sensitive to the needs of their students; for creating an exciting and challenging classroom atmosphere; and contributing to the quality of instruction at West Genesee.
