Teachers Honored as ‘Most Inpirational’

The end of the high school year was not just a time of celebration for all the new graduates and for those looking forward to the delights of a summer vacation. On June 8 in the high school’s cafeteria, it also was a time to present the annual Eagle Award to Boulder City High School’s most inspirational teacher. The top award recipient receives an Eagle trophy with a U.S. eagle gold coin. The runners-up receive a plaque with a U.S. eagle silver dollar coin. The awards are sponsored by locals David Baker, Jon Barth and Glenn Nakadate. The recipient is chosen from a list submitted by a vote of all the students with accompanying comments.

This year for the first time, there was a tie for the top honor by English teachers Steve Roe and Molly Spurlock. The runners-up were U.S. history teacher Canaan Petersen and English teacher Leslie Ringen. Pictured from left, is Petersen, Spurlock, high school principal Kent Roberts holding the award for Roe, and Ringen.
