Nominate an outstanding teacher for the 2023 R.E.B. awards

Posted on

Nominations are open for the 2023 R.E.B. Awards for Teaching Excellence, The Community Foundation’s yearly awards that identify, recognize, and support outstanding teachers in the area.  Through your efforts, two Maggie Walker Governor’s School teachers, Mr. Wilkes and Ms. Lemco won the award in 2021, while another, Ms. Macklin was recognized as a finalist. 

Through a nomination process, approximately 15 outstanding teachers are selected each year to receive cash grants to support professional development activities. Award recipients have earned graduate degrees, climbed mountains, traced their ancestors, and met peers from around the world – all to reignite their own passion for learning and to pass it on to their students.

The Community Foundation invites nominations from students, parents, colleagues, school staff and administrators (except for the school principal), and the community at large.  Nominations must be made online and be accompanied by a letter in support of the nomination, written by another individual, and submitted online with the nomination.

Nominations and letters of support must be submitted through the Community Foundation’s website by February 21, 2023, by 5 p.m.
