08-16-12: PTA Council presents annual awards

Several hundred people gathered in May at the Puyallup PTA Council’s 46th Annual Awards Banquet to recognize deserving volunteers and educators with the Golden Acorn Award, the Zeiger Award, and other special recognitions.

Puyallup School District Superintendent Tim Yeomans addressed the crowd as the keynote speaker. The event was held at the Puyallup Fair & Events Center. Heidi Zetterberg, president of the Maplewood PTA, received the PTA Council’s Golden Acorn Award. The Council also announced Golden Acorn Award winners from schools throughout the district.

Kevin Hampton, newly named principal at Carson Elementary who formerly served as principal at Meeker Elementary, received the Zeiger Award, which recognizes an outstanding educator.
