Rockwood is now accepting nominations for the ROSE Award.
The ROSE, which stands for Rockwood Outstanding Service in Education, is awarded to 15 deserving individuals each year. These recipients may be a teacher, administrator, support staff member, parent volunteer or community member.
Now in its 34th year, the ROSE Award program has honored more than 500 staff and community members.
This year's committee chairs are Kary Bachert, parent at Eureka High; Julie Cooper, traveling school counselor at Kehrs Mill and Wild Horse elementary schools; Erin Knight, administrative intern at Stanton Elementary and Angie Schott, assistant principal at Green Pines Elementary.
"The ROSE Award is an incredibly special honor given to the dedicated, hard-working, most caring hearts in Rockwood," Schott shared. "It is a bucket-filler every year to see the impressive list of individuals who are nominated by their peers, colleagues and community."
"The real magic happens at the ROSE banquet when the 15 selected recipients get to hear the person who nominated them speak from the heart and share how their dedication, hard work and care has impacted and changed lives," she added. "It reminds us all of why we do what we do and how much of an impact one person can have on another."
Nominations will be accepted online through Thursday, Jan. 26
