AIKEN, S.C. –– Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, LLC recently assisted Public Education Partners (PEP) with this year’s Teacher of the Year “Salute to Excellence” award celebration as the Title Sponsor, acknowledging the vital role educators play, especially in the greater Aiken-Augusta area. SRNS President & CEO Dwayne Wilson was this year’s keynote speaker.

The 2012/2013 Teacher of the Year award recipient Elizabeth Supan stated, “It is very exciting and rewarding to receive this recognition after 20 years of teaching. It's like icing on the cake!” Supan is a fourth grade teacher at Aiken Elementary School.

The event was held at the University of South Carolina Aiken Convocation Center before an audience of dozens of fellow teachers.

Each year, every public school in Aiken County presents for consideration a nominee for this special award. Each nominee attends the award ceremony. Six of these educators are selected to be in the honor court, from which, the Teacher of the Year is selected.

Representing SRNS as the Title Sponsor, Robert Gentry, Vice President, Site Services, had the privilege of presenting the 2013 winner with a new laptop computer purchased by SRNS, demonstrating SRNS’ appreciation for her extraordinary work and years of dedication towards the scholastic achievement of numerous students.

“We at SRNS have a sincere passion for supporting education outreach initiatives, year-round, throughout the CSRA,” said Wilson. “It’s at the primary and secondary levels of education within area school systems that our future leaders and the Savannah River Site's future employees are nurtured, shaped and prepared for life as an adult. We want to be an integral part of supporting that process.”

Jeff Howell, Executive Director, PEP, noted that SRNS also financially supports several other PEP programs and initiatives including their Summer Institute, strings orchestra, the purchasing of synergistic module labs and providing a $500 Grant of the Month for Aiken County teachers.
