Excellence in Education Awards
The Joseph B. Morton Excellence in Education Awards have been presented since 1996 by the Sylacauga City Schools Foundation in partnership with the Sylacauga City School system. The purpose of the awards are to reward and bring recognition to a teacher, a support person, and a volunteer who make a significant difference and contribution in the lives of the students that attend Sylacauga City Schools. All three of these positions are essential to the success of students. Each school nominates an individual in each of these three categories. Letters of nomination are submitted to the Sylacauga City Schools Foundation and from those nominations, the three individuals are selected. Awards are presented at the end-of-the-year Institute meeting.
