Five Copperas Cove Independent School District teachers received Welch Foundation teacher appreciation awards earlier this month.
Brandon Lindsay, Michael Rudewick, Catherine Shuler, Maria Castellano, and Mary Casey all received the most nominations from students that qualified them to be recipients of the $100 award and certificate.
For a week, Copperas Cove High School students had the opportunity to submit applications to the Welch Foundation.
The Welch Foundation has awarded scholarships to Cove ISD students for more than a decade.
Jack Welch, the district’s athletic director, said this year the board decided to extend its support of education with teacher appreciation awards.
