This was one of my favorite weekends of the year. Not because we finally got a real dose of spring fever with temperatures rocketing into the 80s on Saturday. And certainly not because winter seemed to return with a vengeance Sunday with a cold, nasty drizzle that made Saturday seem like a distant memory. The All-Delco Hi-Q team is one way we've addressed that issue. We run the head shot and biographical information each All-Delco Hi-Q member. Along with a feature story. The All-Delco Hi-Q team is not selected by us, but rather by their teammates. A few years after he kicked off the Partners In Education dinner, John decided to add another aspect, honoring the people who were responsible for a lot of that academic excellence. Thus was started the Excellence in Teaching awards. All 19 of them, along with their head shots, appear in today's newspaper. Unfortunately, this year's banquet, set to be held Thursday night at the Drexelbrook, will come with a bit of sadness. John Unangst will not be there. We lost John a few months ago. The All-Delco Hi-Q team and the Excellence in Teaching Awards are testament to what John meant to the Delaware County education community. I will always be grateful for that visit. And I'll be thinking of you Thursday night, John.
