On Thursday, March 5, 2020 the Longmont Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints held their 14th annual Teacher Appreciation Night.
Thirty-five students expressed their gratitude and awarded certificates of appreciation to 35 different teachers and mentors from around the St. Vrain Valley School District and elsewhere.
The evening began with our keynote speaker Carrie Adams who is the program director for the Silver Creek High School Leadership Academy. She started off the evening with an uplifting speech and by awarding the first certificate to her mentors and teachers.
Bitsy and her husband Ron Carlson had a positive impact in Carrie’s life at a critical time in her life at Boulder high school 40 years ago. This led to her life as an educator and coach.
Our MC’s for the evening were Seniors Austin Robison and Kerrigan Thornock. The crowd shed some tears and laughs as the Seniors each highlighted their special mentors. The evening concluded with a musical number by the Graduating Seniors called “Each Life That Touches ours for Good.”
