Sixteen School District 62 personnel and one former board of education member were among 198 award recipients recognized for their outstanding service to education at the 37th annual Those Who Excel/Teacher of the Year banquet. Outstanding teachers, administrators, student support personnel, educational service personnel and community members from across the state took the stage Saturday, Oct. 22, where the Illinois State Board of Education honored them.

The nomination process began in January, when District 62 candidates were nominated by their colleagues for District 62 Lighthouse Awards. Those Who Excel nominees were selected by members of the District 62 community advisory board to represent the district in the Those Who Excel Awards program. Nominations included a brief biography of the nominee, his or her philosophy of education, professional development and community involvement and their opinions of the state's most pressing educational needs. Letters of recommendation were also required.
