PHOENIX -- Mr. Todd Wolff is the newest alumni to the list of Silver Apple award recipients. Nominated by a former student who said that Mr. Wolff "showed [him] to dream and strive for [his] own voice". Mr Wolff's commitment to education and his students are just a few of the qualities we look for when selecting award recipients.
Kaley O'Kelley stopped by Centennial High School and surprised Mr. Wolff during one of his language arts classes (he also is the Newspaper Advisor for the school), and boy was he caught off guard. Justin, now a sophmore, nominated Mr. Wolff and used words from a famous poem by Walt Whitman to show his thanks by saying "Oh Captain, My Captain" thank you!
Watch as Kaley & Justin surprise Mr. Wolff!
Thank you to Batteries & Bulbs for their sponsorship of this program, making it possible for each of the Silver APple recipients to receive $500 to use in their classroom.
