Kim Kelly with her award.

Montgomery County Counselor of the Year for 2013 by the Montgomery County Counselors Association, Principal Bill Ziegler reports..

"It is my honor to congratulate Kim Kelly," Ziegler said prior to a recent special luncheon during which she was recognized with a plaque for special recognition from the association.

"Our faculty and staff are so proud of Mrs. Kelly for this prestigious award; she plays such an instrumental role in the life of our school," Ziegler wrote in a note to The Digital Notebook.

"This is the same recognition that Mr. Kincaid received in 2010 as he was selected as the 2010 Montgomery Counselor of the Year," he added.

But Kelly was not the only award-winner in the building.

Pottsgrove Middle School Physical Education Teacher, Marilyn Eaton, was selected as the NFL's Fuel Up to Play 60 Advisor for Pennsylvania and the Pottsgrove Middle School FUP60 team was also recognized at the highest level, according to Ziegler.

"Marilyn was recognized for her achievement in the Mid-Atlantic Dairy and NFL's partnership of the Fuel Up to Play 60 program which encourages students to make sure that they get 60 minutes of physical activity each day to stay healthy and strong," Ziegler wrote.

"Marilyn and the Fuel Up to Play 60 PGMS Teacher team attended a special reception at Lincoln Financial Field. At this event, Marilyn had an opportunity to showcase the great work of our students and staff," according to Ziegler.

"Mrs. Eaton is now responsible for the leadership of the Pennsylvania Fuel Up to Play 60 program which helps schools to find ways to get students physically active for at least 60 minutes each day," he wrote.

In addition to Marilyn's honor, the PGMS Fuel Up to Play 60 Teacher Team won the highest recognition from the FUP60 for their full implementation of the program at PGMS.

During this evening event, teachers got a chance to meet with Philadelphia Eagle Tight End, Brent Celek, tour Lincoln Financial Field, and connect with a local dairy farmer.

The FUP60 Team of Teachers Include: Marilyn Eaton, Julie Davis, Stacy McHugh, Deb Arnosky, Steve Pallidino, Jennifer Forwood, Gloria Fritz, Christine Henry, Deb MacIlvain, Jim Polli, Susan Rutter, Eric Engstrom, Deb Frasca, Justin Giles, Cristina Kleinfelter, and Jodi Sproule.

"Congratulations to the entire Fuel Up to Play 60 PGMS Team, and Mrs. Eaton as she now will be leading the state for the next school year with the FUP60 program," Ziegler wrote.
