Ten Black Hawk County teachers have been named 2020 Gold Star Award winners. The Gold Star Award for Outstanding Teaching is co-sponsored by the R.J. McElroy Trust and KWWL television. McElroy Trust received 1,113 nominations for 500 teachers in the county this year. Teachers were nominated by students, parents, community members and colleagues. The 10 award winners represent the hundreds of teachers who rise above everyday standards to help students achieve their fullest potential. In addition to a $1,000 honorarium, the McElroy Trust will also award each Gold Star teacher $500 to improve his/her classroom. The program honoring this year’s Gold Star Teachers will be at 7 p.m. Sept. 29 at the Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center.
