At the Sound Learning Annual Board Meeting, Thursday, October 19, Shelton School District Superintendent, Dr. Alex Apostle, was awarded the Lynn Busacca Literacy Advocate Award for 2017. This award is given to an individual who has demonstrated a dedication to changing lives through education in Mason County and is recognized for devoting time, effort and energy to improving the lives of others in our community through literacy.
“Your leadership of the reconfiguration of Shelton School District’s instructional programs, grade levels, and buildings through tireless advocacy within the community will give our children unlimited opportunities to build stronger futures for themselves. Your support, understanding, and commitment to the Re-engagement program for youths 16 to 21 years of age gives them a second chance to continue their education.” Sue Ickes, Executive Director, Sound Learning
The award is a perpetual plaque that is on display in the Sound Learning office on Railroad Ave in Shelton. A framed certificate with Dr. Apostle’s name and year of the award was received by Dr. Apostle during the meeting.
