Two Pottsgrove Middle School teachers, social studies teacher Barbara Fagan and history teacher Charles Deveney, were recognized recently by Horace Mann Insurance.

Fagan was presented with the Crystal Apple Award after being named Pottsgrove Middle School's Teacher of the Year by Horace Mann agent Dave Grauel, during a recent ceremony.

 “She is a dedicated teacher. She goes above and beyond, said Principal William Ziegler.

Also recognized was  Deveney, who has earned a Horace Mann-Abraham Lincoln Fellowship.

Deveney was presented with a certificate for the Horace Mann-Abraham Lincoln Fellowship Program and  will take part in the program in Lincoln’s hometown of Springfield, Ill. 

He is one of 50y teachers and/or school administrators will take part in the 2013 Fellowship program.

While in Springfield earlier this week, Deveney received a behind-the-scenes look at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum (ALPLM). 

The fellowship program includes lectures by library staff and Lincoln experts who provide great insight on Lincoln and the Civil War. 

The five-day event includes special guided tours at Lincoln's Tomb, Lincoln's Home and the village of New Salem where Lincoln lived in as a young man. 

Grauel said, “Mr. Deveney is in for an experience he’ll remember for a lifetime.”

The Fellowship features two five-day programs, one in June and one in July, and includes round-trip transportation, lodging, and most meals, all provided by Horace Mann.
