“FOUR FORT MYERS CHRISTIAN SCHOOL TEACHERS HONORED AS GOLDEN HALO FINALISTS”

FORT MYERS, FL—Four Fort Myers Christian School (FMCS) teachers were selected as “Golden Halo” finalists during a surprise visit by the Christian Chamber of Southwest Florida on Tuesday, March 6, 2018.

For the past twelve years, the Christian Chamber of Southwest Florida has honored private school teachers with Golden Halo Awards. These awards recognize outstanding teachers in private schools in Lee County. According to their website, the Golden Halo Award recognizes teachers who “educate, motivate, and inspire their students”.

Golden Halo finalists for 2018 from Fort Myers Christian School are: Mrs. Amber Davis, first grade; Mrs. Jo Weber, kindergarten; Mrs. Shellee Harper, second grade; and Miss Naomi Welborn, third grade. Pictures of teachers accepting the awards can be found by clicking the link on each of their names.

We have had a lot of really great news and blessings in recent weeks,” shared FMCS principal Mel Mitchell. “We were just named a top finalist for ‘Best Private School’ in Lee County by Gulfshore Life and Myra Stewart, our Learning Resource Program lead teacher, along with four exceptional students earned “Rising Star” awards from Step Up for Students. Now, this week we were surprised with a special visit to our school from the Christian Chamber of Southwest Florida to recognize four outstanding teachers nominated as finalists for the Golden Halo award. We have been blessed in so many ways lately. We have a great team at the school!”
