Crystal Apple Society recognizes educators who exemplify excellence and honors those who have made significant contributions to the education profession. Teachers, professors, coaches, librarians, administrators and counselors are eligible to receive the award. In 2012, the College of Education at Tarleton State University established this new award to honor educators who have made a positive impact on the lives of students. We all can think of special educators who made a difference in our lives and the lives of others, and the Crystal Apple Society is the perfect opportunity to honor these dedicated individuals. Nomination donations provide scholarships for students enrolled in the College of Education. To nominate an educator, make a minimum donation of $500.
