CARE Award - February 2018

Feb CARE Award Winner

Canby Kiwanis and the Canby Business
Community are pleased to announce the
following Canby Area Recognition of Excellence (CARE) Award recipient:

Jodi Gelder, Cap English Teacher

Jodi was nominated by one of her students: "I am nominating Ms. Gelder because she knows how to properly handle it when someone needs emotional support and she is very good at helping people with their work even when they are frustrated or in a bad mood."

Principal Dinse is also grateful for Ms. Gelder's excellent work with students saying, "Jodi grabs those kids who might fall by the wayside and possibly drop out, and provides them not only a good academic education that gets them all to graduation (which is just amazing, if you want to see someone who has a thumb on graduation rates, see what Jodi does with those kids) but Jodi also teaches them the skills that they really need to be successful in life."

Congratulations, Ms. Gelder!

The CARE Award is sponsored by the following local businesses: Back Stop Bar & Grill, Pudding River Chocolates, Wild Hare, Cutsforth's Marketplace, The Human Bean, DirectLink, Columbia Bank, and Rice Time.

If you know a teacher, counselor, coach or support staff that has made a difference in your life, the life of a child, or in our community, consider nominating him/her for a CARE Award. You can find the nomination form here.
