Noreen Cromly of Oregon and Kathy Wilkens of Perrysburg, science teachers at Central Catholic High School, were among those selected by the Ohio Academy of Science to receive the Governor's Award for excellence in teaching. They will receive special certificates from the Ohio Department of Education.
Central Catholic received the Governor's Award for Excellence in Youth Science Opportunities and is the only high school in the Toledo area to receive the award 10 years in a row.
To qualify for the award, schools must conduct a local science fair with 20 or more students, have at least one of those students participate in the Academy's district science day, and involve students in science events outside the classroom.
