Golden Apple finalists
Congratulations to the five teachers from southern Lee County who join 28 others as finalists for Lee's 2012 Golden Apples.
The local honorees are: AnnMarie Ferry of Estero High School; Angela Amos and Heather Millican, both of Cypress Lake Middle School; Sara Kohlhauff of Pine Woods Elementary; and Mary Beth Graziani of Spring Creek Elementary.
The 33 finalists were chosen from more than 22,000 nominations to the Lee County Education Foundation.
This year's six Golden Apple recipients will be announced in March and honored at a banquet the following month at Harborside Event Center in Fort Myers.
Collier's 31 finalists were announced previously. Their awards banquet will be at the Naples Grande, also in April.
Congratulations to them all.
