The award recipients were presented with their awards during Convocation Day festivities. They were honored for their dedication, outstanding achievement and service to the Orange Schools. Superintendent Edwin Holland along with Lander Circle Kiwanis President-Elect Joseph Mayo presented the plaques to the award winners. Family and friends were on-hand to surprise the award recipients as each name was announced. This is the 25th year the Lander Circle Kiwanis has honored members of the Orange Schools staff who are nominated by their peers.
