CHEYENNE – Ten Wyoming teachers were honored today as recipients of the prestigious statewide Arch Coal Teacher Achievement Award at a ceremony at the Capitol.
Arch Coal President and Chief Executive Officer John W. Eaves, accompanied by Gov. Matt Mead, Wyoming First Lady Carol Mead and Wyoming Education Association (WEA) Treasurer Jon VanOverbeke, presented awards to local teachers Charles Franke (Wheatland Middle School) and Liesl Peterson (Wheatland High School).
Each teacher received a personal cash award of $3,500 from the Arch Coal Foundation, as well as a distinctive trophy and plaque. The Arch Coal Teacher Achievement Awards program, now completing its 13th year in Wyoming, is the state’s longest-running privately sponsored teacher recognition program.
“Wyoming’s classroom teachers are shaping the next generation of leaders in our communities and beyond,” said Eaves. “Arch Coal is proud to have taken a leadership role in Wyoming to ensure that the state’s star teachers are recognized for their contributions.”
