Almost everyone has had a teacher that is remembered for impacting a life. A kind word, a stern reprimand, extra time spent tutoring or a sympathetic ear can make a difference. The Chamber believes that these unsung heroes deserve a night of recognition and the Golden Apple Awards for Excellence in Teaching does it in style.
Held in one of the Cayman Islands’ beautiful hotel ballrooms, and decorated by one of our Event Planning Members, Glitz and Glamour are the buzz words for the evening! This black-tie affair pulls out all the stops to award 5 teachers and 1 principal the coveted Golden Apple. A special Lifetime Achievement Award is given to a person who has dedicated years to ensuring the Cayman Islands education system is the best that it can be. Nominees and winners are treated to photographic portraits to help them remember their special night while friends and family help celebrate.
Being an educator encompasses more than simply teaching the A,B,C’s and 1,2 3’s. It requires patience, perseverance, kindness, empathy and a genuine desire to mold this country’s future generation. The Chamber is proud to be able to applaud these worthy individuals.
