[Submitted by Diane Merten, Director of Public Affairs for the Corvallis Oregon Stake]

CORVALLIS, OREGON -- The LDS Church's Corvallis, Oregon Stake hosted a special service Sunday night, honoring 37 local educators for their work. This was the Stake's second annual "Teacher Appreciation and Community Service Recognition Evening" in which teachers nominated by LDS children in the Corvallis and Philomath school districts.

"We count this as a long needed expression of thanks to these public servants who give tirelessly of their lives to better our families and the community," said Jack Sharp of the LDS Public Affairs Council. The students that nominated the teachers also planned the appreciation service themselves. During the program, each teacher was recognized and given a certificate of honor and a corsage, made by two of the students.

Franklin School teacher Jennifer England, gave the keynote address titled "The Joy of Shaping Young Lives." England was the teacher most nominated by the students. Also recognized at the ceremony was Gordon Duckworth, who has given more than 20 years of service to the Boy Scouts of America.
