Jeneane Arter Award

The Jeneane Arter Teaching in Excellence Award

The P-H-M Education Foundation is sponsoring the Jeneane Arter Teaching in Excellence Award. This new $2,000 award – named after Northpoint Elementary School teacher Jeneane Arter – will be given to any current P-H-M staff member who exemplifies excellence in education. The award is underwritten by P-H-M parents Jason and Darla Lippert.

The annual award will be determined based on a current P-H-M student one-page essay of how the P-H-M staff member has made a lasting impact on his/her educational experience. Younger students may have parents/adult help them write the essay, but the essay should be the student’s own words. The essay should contain specific examples of the P-H-M employee’s outstanding service. Please include at the top of the page, the following information:

  • Student’s first and last name
  • School and grade
  • Telephone number and email address (for notification or question purpose)

The nominated P-H-M staff member must be a current employee. The P-H-M Education Foundation will select the recipient of the Jeneane Arter Teaching in Excellence Award through its Grant Committee. The winner will be announced by June 1, 2018.

Essays are due to the ESC by Friday, March 30, 2018, or may be mailed to the
P-H-M Education Foundation, attention Jeneane Arter Award, 55900 Bittersweet Road, Mishawaka, IN 46545. The one-page essay should be either typed or hand written. Electronic submissions will not be considered.
