WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Many be­lieve ed­u­ca­tors are un­sung he­roes be­cause of their low pay and de­mand­ing re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. Each year, the Eco­nomic Coun­cil of Palm Beach County, Inc. and the Ed­u­ca­tion Foun­da­tion of Palm Beach County, Inc. honor out­stand­ing ed­u­ca­tors from pub­lic and pri­vate schools in Palm Beach County to show sup­port and pro­vide fi­nan­cial rewards to a de­serv­ing few.

The 30 fi­nal­ists for the 34th An­nual Wil­liam T. Dwyer Awards for Ex­cel­lence in Ed­u­ca­tion were re­cently an­nounced, and award re­cip­i­ents will be an­nounced and hon­ored along with all fi­nal­ists, nom­i­nees and past re­cip­i­ents at the Dwyer Awards cer­e­mony, pre­sented by the Han­ley Foun­da­tion, on May 8 at the Kravis Cen­ter for the Per­form­ing Arts.

The Dwyer Awards, de­vel­oped and sup­ported by the Eco­nomic Coun­cil, in­crease aware­ness of the ex­em­plary teach­ing in the community, sup­ports ed­u­ca­tors with fi­nan­cial awards, and en­cour­ages all res­i­dents to pro­mote high stan­dards for ex­cel­lence in ed­u­ca­tion. For more in­for­ma­tion and to pur­chase tick­ets to the cer­e­mony, visit the Dwyer Awards web­site.
