2015 Voices of Inspiration Award for Teaching Excellence
The Voices of Inspiration Award was created by Freedom Credit Union and the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit to recognize and reward teachers throughout Montgomery County. Initiated in 2007, the Award honors exceptional educators and their commitment to students, families, and the community as a whole. The enthusiasm of the participating schools and communities continually set a strong foundation for the Voices of Inspiration Award, helping make it a great success and allowing us to pay tribute to teachers for years to come.
