Montgomery teacher and Loyalsock B&G supervisor receive 2019 Woodson Awards

Chris Ulrich, technology and agriculture teacher at Montgomery High School, and Brian Bubb, supervisor of Building and Grounds for the Loyalsock Township School District, were presented with this year’s Lauretta Woodson Awards from the Lycoming County Chapter of Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees.

The award recognizes public school personnel who have exhibited creativity, initiative and productivity relevant to the learning process and growth of children.

This annual award recognizes one educator and one school support person from the public schools of Lycoming County.

Nominated by school administrators, a committee of organization members chose the two recipients from among many qualified nominees.

Each received a large framed plaque from the Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees (PASR) and two tickets each to the Community Arts Center in Williamsport.

Woodson, after whom the award is named, received her doctorate from Temple University, taught high school English and served for more than 25 years on the faculty of Temple University. Following her retirement, she was active in PASR and upon her passing, bequeathed a sum of money allowing for the establishment of these awards which she hoped would provide positive recognition for those still in active service to children throughout the Commonwealth and in so doing, generate positive publicity for public education throughout Pennsylvania.
