D The Message m for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Januar Teacher of the Year Nominations are now being accepted for diocesan awal By MARY ANN HUGHES Message staff writer The Message and the Office of Catholic Education are co- sponsoring the seventh annual Diocese of Evansville Teacher of the Year award. Bishop Ger- ald A. Gettelfinger will an- nounce the 1994 Teacher of the Year May 4. At the May banquet, teach- ers who have taught in dioce- san schools 20, 30, 40 and 50 years will also be honored. Phyllis Beshears, director of schools, in reflecting on the an- nual diocesan program, said "All of us who work in Catholic Education realize that provid- ing quality religious instruc- tion and experiences are the major reasons for our Catholic schools to exist. "We take great pride in knowing that we are passing on the traditions of our Catholic faith and that we are preparing our students well spiritually and academically for their future. In addition to these benefits, Catholic schools can also be proud of the many loving, caring and dedicated teachers who give of them- selves each day in our schools. Our teachers know their stu- dents. They know their names, they know their family mem- bers, and they care about what is happening in their students' lives. "Honoring outstanding teachers and excellence in edu- cation has also become a tradi- tion in our diocese. Once again we are preparing for our an- nual recognition banquet at which time we take an evening to recognize those who are spending their life to work with the young people in Catholic schools within our diocese. It gives me great plea- sure to work on this project again this year. Without these wonderful men and women, we would have no schools."
