Houston, Texas (PRWEB) August 19, 2011
Honoring a loved one with the foundation of an educational award or scholarship is a popular way to keep the memory of that person’s work and life alive while also contributing positively to the community that they loved. George Fleming Attorney, a well-known legal professional in the Houston, TX community, established the Fleming Award for Teaching Excellence to honor the memory of his father, who passed away in 2003. Now, six years after the award was founded, George Fleming Attorney continues to honor the dedication to education that his father held by awarding the Fleming Award for Teaching Excellence to its 2011 recipients, Linda Ream and Br. Casey Ferlita, SJ.
The winners of the Fleming Award are chosen for their successes in the classroom setting as well as their overall approach to students. Two awards are given, one for a teacher that has been working at Strake Jesuit College Preparatory for over 15 years and one that has been working there for less. Both of the 2011 recipients have illustrated an unfailing dedication to educational excellence and a sense of cura personalis to their students, or “care for the entire person.” This level of educational excellence is that which has the power to inspire and truly reach students in a way that allows them to remember their teachers, and the lessons they taught them, for a lifetime. Ream is the Department Chair for Mathematics at Strake Jesuit College Preparatory. She has been teaching at Jesuit for 10 years. Br. Casey has been a member of the Strake faculty since 1973.
