A language arts teacher and a school custodian working in the Titusville Area School district are the recipients of awards from the Pennsylvania association of School Retirees. Barbara Frye, a teacher at the Titusville Middle School and Main Street Elementary School staffer Tracy Pearson are recognized with the Lauretta Woodson Award for their diligent and dedicated work.
Carol Hall, representing PASR, was first on the agenda at Monday night's school district board committee meeting. Hall told board members that Frye is "truly dedicated to the art of teaching. Teaching isn't just a job to Barb, it's a passion and she truly lives it." Frye is set to retire in June after thirty years of service to the Titusville Area School District.
Tracy Pearson is recognized as a "a great employee who is a hard worker, takes pride in everything she does, and gives above and beyond to help our school run efficiently"
Pearson instituted the Golden Dustpan, a rewards program designed to recognized students helping to keep their classrooms clean. Each day a classroom is awarded the Golden Dustpan. The classroom holding the golden dustpan the most over a two week period gets a prize from Pearson.
