Wildermuth Award for Excellence in Education
The Wildermuth Award for Excellence in Education was created to reward an educator in the School District of Fort Atkinson for exemplary work in the area of education. The recipient of the award may be a teacher, media specialist, guidance counselor, school social worker, school psychologist, or other certified staff member.
The Fort Atkinson Community Foundation, the School District of Fort Atkinson, and the Fort Atkinson Education Association sponsor this award that is given in memory of Ron Wildermuth, former Director of Instruction. This annual award is presented each fall at the staff convocation program. Ron’s family requested this particular occasion because Ron was very involved with the orientation program every year.
Teachers, administrators, community members, parents, and students can submit nominations, which will be accepted through Thursday, April 7, 2022. If you wish to nominate an educator for this award, please return your completed nomination form to Matt Wolf at the Fort Atkinson Middle School by the April 7th deadline. Nomination forms are available in each school office and on the SDFA website (www.fortschools.org).
According to the guidelines that have been established, the committee will consist of the following members, with each serving a three-year term.
- Six teachers, one representing each building
- One administrator
- One community member
- Previous year’s award recipient
