1999 Crystal Apple Dinner Honor Educators

Twenty-five educators from throughout Michigan and the nation were honored at the fifth annual Crystal Apple Awards in November. Dr. Thomas R. Giblin, superintendent of the East Lansing Public Schools, delivered the keynote address to an audience of more than 250 people at the University Club. The annual awards ceremony is sponsored by the College of Education and the Richard Lee Featherstone Society. Inaugurated in 1995, the awards are a way to honor educators selected by donors as being representative of excellence and commitment. Gifts made in honor of these outstanding educators are designated for the Excellence Fund of the College of Education, which provides scholarship assistance to worthy students. Teachers, professors, administrators and counselors-active, retired, or deceased-currently or previously employed in a learning community, from preschool through the university level, are eligible to receive the award. To honor the career of an outstanding educator, contact Sheila Steger, director of development, 518 Erickson Hall, MSU, East Lansing, MI 48824-1034; (517) 432-1983; or e-mail steger@msu.edu.
