PAHS teacher Melanie Mayer gets award
Only eight other educators in state receive honor
Port Aransas High School teacher Melanie Mayer has been named a recipient of the 2011 Outstanding Teaching of the Humanities Award.
While 230 Texas teachers were nominated for the honor, Mayer was one of only 13 who got the award.
Mayer was presented with the award during a gathering at the Una Farley Library at PAHS on Monday, Jan. 2. The event attracted about 40 folks, including Port Aransas teachers, school administrators and U.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold, whose congressional district includes Port Aransas.
