Canyons Honors Community Members with Apex Awards

From a talented middle school math teacher to a visionary Utah State Senator, the Canyons Board of Education on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012 honored the contributions of eight Canyons community members at its third-annual Apex Awards ceremony.

The Board of Education’s Apex Awards are designed to express gratitude to community leaders and educators who have served as champions of public education and who exemplify the Board’s four tenets of fostering student achievement, community engagement, innovation, and customer service.

“It is our honor to publicly acknowledge the vision and wisdom of people who have gone above and beyond in their commitment to the continued success of the children in Canyons District,” said Tracy Scott Cowdell, President of the Canyons Board of Education. “Their talent, tenacity and generosity not only influence the students of today, but inspire the leaders of tomorrow.”

The recipients of the second annual Apex Awards are:

The event included a reception, dinner and awards ceremony, in which Teachers of the Year from each Canyons school also received honors. The Apex Awards were held at Last Chance Lodge at Solitude Mountain Resort in conjunction with Kimi’s Mountainside Bistro, one the District’s community partners.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
