State Senator John A. DeFrancisco held his 2017 New York State Senate Teachers of Excellence awards program on May 4, 2017 at West Genesee High School. Senator DeFrancisco honored more than 30 educators from Onondaga and Cayuga counties who go above and beyond to help inspire and mentor their students. These educators were nominated by school administrators, faculty and staff.
“Teachers are instrumental in enabling our youth to succeed in life,” said Senator DeFrancisco. “I am very pleased to recognize these dedicated educators within my district, who consistently go above and beyond to educate, mentor and inspire their students.”
In recognition of their professional accomplishments, Senator DeFrancisco presented all of the honorees with a New York State Senate Teachers of Excellence certificate and a “Golden Apple” pin.
