Board of Education Honors 13 with Apex Awards

A magical math teacher, a rock star volunteer and Canyon School District’s inaugural superintendent were among the 13 recipients of the fourth annual Apex Awards ceremony on Wednesday, Sept. 10, 2013.

Canyons’ Board of Education initiated the Apex Awards in 2010 as a way to publicly acknowledge and honor champions of public education in the community. Educators, District employees, legislators, city officials, community leaders and volunteers who go above and beyond receive the District’s highest recognition as a result of their tireless work on behalf of Canyons District students.

“The word ‘apex’ is a mathematical term,” Board of Education President Sherril Taylor said at the award ceremony. “It’s the height of a true challenge … The people we are honoring know well what it takes to reach the top. Through their words and deeds, they have not just followed the paths in front of them, they have blazed a trail for others to follow.”

This year’s recipients are:

Recipients of the award and some 200 guests were honored at a dinner and reception at The Gathering Place at Gardner Village on Wednesday, Sept. 10, 2013.

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!
