City of Smyrna Mayor Max Bacon will honor a group of local teachers, students and volunters with the Mayor’s Education Award on Monday, Dec. 3, at the City Hall. The event will begin with a reception at 6 p.m. followed by the awards ceremony at 6:30.
Awards will be presented in the categories of student, staff and volunteer for the semester from each of the 12 Smyrna area schools with the addition of International Academy of Smyrna, a public charter school. Recipients are recognized for their academic achievement, dedication and volunteer service.
Bacon created the Mayor's Education Award in late 2005 to acknowledge the exceptional academic achievement of Smyrna students, and contributions from staff and volunteers.
“I am excited about recognizing our students for their academic accomplishments,” Bacon said. “Not only is it the kids, but the parents, volunteers and teachers constant support of our schools that make them the best places to be.”
The award recipients were selected by principals from the 12 Smyrna area schools.
