May Golden Apple Award

May Golden Apple

POSTED BY devind . June 16, 2020

School is out… for… the summer!

Although, it feels like schools let out months ago after being forced to move online due to the pandemic.

2020 has brought everlasting change for many of us, and our 2020 May Golden Apple Award winner has found something positive through the struggles.

Chad Rinard, the Principal at Marietta High School has been in education for twenty years, and says this year’s virtual graduation was one of the most rewarding moments of his career.

“For the first time in my high school administrative experience, it was neat to see graduation with a personal connection with the families. We saw hugs and salutes, because this is the first time that we had family members hand the diploma to the graduates.” – Chad

Chad is known by his colleagues to be tough, but empathetic with an open door policy that has been helpful throughout COVID-19.

Rinard will officially be presented with his Jan Dils Golden Apple Award and a gift from Baker & Baker Jewelers in the coming weeks.
