Nominate a Teacher for a Voices of Inspiration Award

In 2013, Pottstown High School teacher Cal Benfield,
second from right, 
received a Voices of Inspiration Award.
Most of us remember the teachers who inspired us.

Not surprisingly, for me it was mostly social studies and English teachers, although I am forever thankful to Pleasantville High School math teacher Frank Pepper for teaching me how geometry works.

So yes, as individuals we remember our teachers, but are those teachers "remembered?"

They can be, if you nominate them for the Freedom Credit Union and the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit 2015 “Voices of Inspiration” Award for Teaching Excellence.

That person could be a teacher, counselor, librarian, or specialist in your school.

Recognizing notable educators is easy: nominate that person today, and encourage others in your school community to do the same.

When students, parents, co-workers, administrators, and school employees nominate the exceptional educators in their lives…

  • A teacher in your school could win $500! 23 Finalists are chosen and honored, then three Grand-Prize Winners are selected from these Finalists, and receive $500. A teacher from your school could be a winner.
  • Your school could win $500! The school in Montgomery County with the most nominations will win $500 to use for any educational purpose.

Nominations are the heart of the “Voices of Inspiration” Awards, so it is important to raise awareness in your school about the program and the nomination process.

Nominations can be submitted online by visiting or

The deadline for nominations is April 1, 2015!
