Deadline Approaches for Teacher Award Nominations

The Great Neck Public Schools reminds alumni that the deadline to nominate a GNPS educator for the annual Christa Fulton Memorial Teacher Award is Jan. 31, 2021.

The sole purpose of this award is to recognize GNPS educators who have had a profound impact on the lives of students. Alumni from North High School, South High School, and Village School may nominate an elementary teacher, a secondary school teacher, a guidance counselor, or a social worker for this award.

Nominations detailing how the selected teacher has had an impact on the individual’s life must be submitted to by Jan. 31. Authors should identify themselves only by their student number, which may be obtained from the guidance office at the high school they attended (or for Village School graduates, the middle school attended). Please also include the name of the high school attended and the year of graduation.

A five-member award committee will carefully consider all nominations and select two recipients based on the perceived impact that the teachers had on their students’ lives.

For additional information about this award, including the nomination and selection process, contact Dr. Stephen Lando, Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Education, at
