2012 Celebration of Excellence Dinner a Huge Success


Twenty-four Graduating Seniors and 24 Distinguished Educators were recognized at the 2012 Celebration of Excellence Dinner at the Butte Country Club on May 7. The students were chosen as distinguished scholars or achievers and then in turn selected a teacher that made a difference in their education. Descriptions of the teacher's strengths and characteristics authored by the students were read at the dinner.

Master of Ceremony and BEF Board Member, Jim O'Neill, made the evening special with his sincerity and wit. Dr. Ballweber, a major sponsor for the event, and his wife Shawna were in attendance as well as other businesses that have supported the BEF over the years. Second Edition Books and Ann Finch-Johnston & Todd Johnston donated books for the students and teachers to exchange as a memento of the event. Chef John of the Butte Country Club served a very tasty and filling dinner. 

A slideshow on the home page shows all the seniors and educators who were honored. Thanks to LifeTouch Photography for taking all the pictures this year.
