EMHS Teacher Richardson Earns Lauretta Woodson Award

May 8, 2024

RUSSELL, Pa. – Eisenhower Middle High School teacher Erin Richardson was presented with the 2024 Lauretta Woodson Award during Monday night’s school board meeting.

The Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees presented the award.

“The purpose of the Lauretta Woodson Recognition Program is to honor one educator and one support professional for doing an outstanding job within a district or school,” according to the PASR website.

Gloria Warner presented Richardson with the award Monday night.

“This year, I’m pleased to present this award to Erin Richardson,” Warner said. “She was chosen by a committee of from about six or eight different nominees. Some of the reasons that she was nominated were that she has piloted math programs for the district, which has proven successful in helping students improve their math score skills. And she’s a significant player in the tier one PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports), modeling, teaching and acknowledging positive social, emotional and behavioral skills for students. She also started a Middle High School PTO group at her school. And at the end of last year, she reinstated the middle level student council in her school.”
