Seven Sorrows teacher wins Golden Apple Award

Posted

Stephanie Kveragas, second-grade teacher at Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary School in Middletown, was one of seven recipients of The 2017 Golden Apple Award in the Diocese of Harrisburg.

The Golden Apple Award symbolizes a teacher’s professional excellence, leadership, commitment to Catholic values, and devotion to teaching in Catholic schools, according to the diocese website. The award is presented through the Donahue Family Foundation.

An award celebration, hosted by the Most Rev. Ronald Gainer, bishop of Harrisburg, was held last spring at the Cardinal Keeler Diocesan Center in Harrisburg to honor awardees.

Kveragas also received a cash award of $5,000.

Kveragas began her educational career teaching second grade at St. Peter’s Catholic School in 2006. After six years with the school, she took another position at Seven Sorrows, where she continues to teach second grade.

“Mrs. Kveragas is not only an exceptional teacher, but also a tremendous leader in the school. She has an eagerness to not simply teach, but to share knowledge with her students,” a press release from the school stated.
