DELAWARE –State Representative Kris Jordan (R-Ostrander) presented Schultz Elementary School in Delaware County an official commendation from the Ohio House of Representatives for receiving the President’s Award for Exceptional Performance from Scholastic Book Fairs.
“Book fairs and high quality libraries are essential foundational elements to a strong education” said Jordan. “I’m proud of Schultz Elementary and Delaware City Schools for being recognized for this excellent academic achievement.”
Schultz Elementary competed against hundreds of other scholastic book fairs across the country for the award. The school was recognized for their student engagement in the virtual book fair and student interest in books and reading. Only ten schools won an award in various categories.
Jordan presented the commendation to Travis Woodworth, the Schultz Elementary School Principle; Rose Long, the school’s Media Specialist; and Heidi Kegley, Superintendent of Delaware City Schools.
As a result of this honor, Schultz will receive award funds to spend on its library collection.
