The Education Committee of the Dunn Area Chamber of Commerce presented a Golden Apple Award to Maggie Raynor, a fifth-grade teacher at Wayne Avenue Elementary School. Dunn Chamber Vice President of Education Rob Jones, Carnell Robinson, along with Wayne Avenue Assistant Principal Dawn Manship made the presentation.
Mrs. Raynor was nominated by Assistant Principal Manship. The nomination stated, “It is my honor to nominate Maggie Raynor for the Dunn Chamber Golden Apple Award. If you were to look up team player in the dictionary, you would see a picture of Mrs. Raynor. She is always willing to do whatever needs to be done to help her students, her co-workers, and her school.
“Mrs. Raynor has served, for the past two years, as a coach for Wayne Avenue’s First Lego League team, selflessly giving of her time after school and on the weekends. Mrs. Raynor also serves as the chair of Wayne Avenue’s Relay for Life team. She is always smiling and a beacon of positivity. Mrs. Raynor’s love for her students is obvious as you watch her teach and interact with them throughout the school setting. She is truly amazing and Wayne Avenue is blessed to call her a Bulldog.”
