This was my last week before vacation so it was a little slower than normal.
Monday I joined council members Frantz and Smith at the Cary Chamber’s Honor a Teacher Awards Ceremony. This event is to recognize teachers that go above and beyond the call of duty. I had the privilege of giving a few remarks and thanking the teachers before the awards were presented.
There were over 160 nominees and 32 awards in all including one sponsored by the Town of Cary. The awards included a nice glass plaque and a $1000 check. Cary’s award was for civic education and was given to Carolynn Angilello of Turner Creek Elementary. We congratulated our winner and had our picture made with her. The ceremony lasted about an hour and fifteen minutes.
Friday, May 4, 2018 is Star Wars Day and as one of the biggest entertainment franchises in the world, there are bound to be some Star Wars fans in town. Luckily, there are Star Wars-related celebrations all over, from Cary to the Triangle at large.
