check presentation


Schmucker 8th grade Language Arts teacher Mrs. Brianne Roy got quite a surprise this afternoon when Executive Director of P-H-M Education Foundation Jennifer Turnblom, PHMEF Donor & P-H-M parent Darla Lippert, and Schmucker Middle School Principal Sarah Smith all walked in the middle of her teaching her last block class.




They were there to let her know that she had chosen as the 2024 Jeneane Arter Award winner; and she won $2,000 to use how she wants!


The P-H-M Education Foundation administers the Jeneane Arter Teaching in Excellence Award.


The award is underwritten by P-H-M parents Jason and Darla Lippert and is named after Northpoint Elementary School teacher Jeneane Arter.


What makes this award so special is that students submit the nomination. It can be for any current P-H-M staff member. Students submit a one page essay describing how their nominee exemplifies excellence in education. This year PHMEF received 64 nominations from students. Mrs. Roy received nine nominations for the impact she has on her students through her classroom organization, encouraging nature and genuine care for her students!


Congratulations Mrs. Roy!
