Local teachers were selected as the second-annual 2021 McDonald’s Outstanding Educators from a pool of more than 720 nominations.
The award honors educators who exhibit the ultimate dedication to their students and contribute to the improvement of education in our most challenging times. Local McDonald’s Owner/Operator Michael Love Jr. says recognizing teachers for all they do for the youth in the communities they serve is a top priority for local McDonald’s restaurants.
“Our local educators are the definition of perseverance and loyalty. They show up and give their all day after day to make sure our students thrive,” said Love, Jr. “We’re excited to recognize those who go above and beyond for our students through the Outstanding Educator awards.”
Winners of the outstanding educator award each receive a $100 Visa gift card to use toward their classroom; a “Best Teacher Ever!” coffee mug; and McDonald’s coupons to provide to parents with outstanding students throughout the year. Local McDonald’s restaurants dedicated additional funds this year to award one outstanding educator with a $1,000 Visa Gift Card as well.
Love, Jr. and his father and fellow McDonald’s Owner/Operator, Mike Love, partnered with other Western Kentucky area McDonald’s operators including Michael Burrell, Kelsey Hamlet, Chris McEnaney, Joe McEnaney, and Kathy McEnaney to honor the following area educators:
