Two Centre County educators honored by Pennsylvania School Study Council

Two Centre County educators were recognized Wednesday at the annual Pennsylvania School Study Council banquet at The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel.

Stacey Nath, business education teacher at Bellefonte Area School District, received the Walter J. DeLacy Award for excellence in instruction, and Penns Valley Area School District Superintendent Brian Griffith was given the William E. Caldwell Award for excellence in administration and supervision.

Nath was given the designation for her “dedication to provide extracurricular learning opportunities for her students,” a report from Penn State said.

Nath is the district’s Future Business Leaders of America adviser, serves as a state adviser for FBLA, is a board member for the Bellefonte Education Foundation, and serves as an officer for the Pennsylvania Outstanding Young Woman program.

Griffith was given the award for leading by example and promoting the district’s mission to empower students, the report said.

PSSC is a partnership between Penn State and member schools, with a mission to improve public education in the commonwealth.
