This year's recipients were Nancy Juganaru, Jerry McWhorter, and Cyndi Fisher. Jerry is the first person to receive the award who is not a teacher. Cyndi, a Jr. High social studies teacher, established the tradition of having the D'Evelyn field trips to Washington D.C. always visit JB's gravesite.

Additionally, we gave an Excellence in Education Special Tribute Award to Nancy Juganaru for her many years at D'Evelyn as an exceptional language teacher, and also because she was so instrumental in helping JB learn French, a skill he put to use in his service with the Air Force.
