Connolly's Own Phil Lemar Wins 3TV Silver Apple Award
Surprised in class by 3TV news crews, our very own Band Teacher, Phil Lemar, recently won the 3TV Silver Apple Award for his dedication in the classroom and commitment to excellence.
Lemar was nominated by one of his students, Sixth-Grader Lexi Luko, who plays the trumpet. Luko wrote an essay explaining why she felt her teacher deserved the award, and her essay was chosen out of more than 100 entries that were submitted. Lexi nominated Mr. Lemar for more than just the music skills he has taught her but the life lessons as well.
Congratulations to Mr. Lemar and to Lexi, too!
