WRAL-TV Sponsors Teaching Excellence Award

The WRAL/JIFFY LUBE Teaching Excellence Award is a great method for our clients to partner with us for the good of the community.-Marian Bell

WRAL-TV and Jiffy Lube have partnered to recognize some of the excellent, hardworking teachers in the WRAL viewing area. Jiffy Lube ran a schedule in April encouraging viewers to nominate their favorite teachers; WRAL solicited the help of the NC PTA to judge the entries in May.

Criteria for nominations included teachers who exhibit creativity and motivation, the ability to adapt teaching techniques to match different learning styles, and demonstrate special qualities, skills and a positive attitude.

Three winners were selected for 2001: Cindi Shaw from Douglas Elementary School in Raleigh, Meg Dossenbach from Apex Elementary School in Apex and Brian Freeman from Peterson Elementary School in Red Springs. “Each teacher was outstanding, well-deserving and thrilled to be chosen this year!” said WRAL-TV Sales Promotion Manager Marian Bell.
