Elizabeth Levy, a support aide at Exeter Township Senior High School, has recently been honored with the Lauretta Woodson Recognition Award presented by the Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees. The purpose of the annual award is to honor one teacher-educator and one support professional (aide) for doing an outstanding job within a school or district. At a recent PASR dinner, Mrs. Levy received a medallion, certificate, and pin as the support person award recipient. The Lauretta Woodson Award is named in honor of Dr. Lauretta Woodson, a long-standing member of PASR who bequeathed a sum of money to the organization to support public education.
Mrs. Levy has served as an aide in the Exeter Township School District beginning in 1973. She has worked in numerous positions in the district, including as an elementary classroom aide, cafeteria aide, and an aide in secondary learning support and emotional support classes. Regardless of the classroom, Liz has consistently shown the ability to help the neediest of students year after year with her creativity, persistence, patience, and sense of humor. She is extremely self-motivated and will do anything necessary to assist teachers and students. Thomas Henderson, a teacher of special education at Exeter Township Senior High said, “Her work ethic and sense of responsibility are outstanding, and she is always willing to accept new challenges.”
The Exeter Township School District is extremely proud of Mrs. Levy and congratulates her as this year’s recipient.
