How do you nominate teachers or students for the Mayor's Excellence in Education Award?
People in the community can nominate an educator or student for the newly expanded Mayor's Excellence in Education Awards until March 10. The annual award recognizes teachers who demonstrate leadership and community involvement and two high school seniors for accomplishments in technology and leadership.

Teachers will be recognized at school board and City Commission meetings, and students will be presented with a laptop computer donated by Microtech Computers and also recognized at the meetings.
