Eight teachers in Utah's coal country received "Golden Teacher" awards recently from the Arch Coal Foundation.
The foundation presented certificates to Paul Allred, North Sanpete High School, Mount Pleasant; Camille Carlson, Carbon High School, Price; Jessica Jones, North Sevier Middle School, Salina; James Nelson, Ephraim Middle School, Ephraim; and Anne Henrie, Gunnison Valley Elementary School, Gunnison. Three Richfield teachers also were cited: Robyn Lloyd, Red Hills Middle School; Stephanie Johnson, Richfield High School; and Wesley Torgersen, Ashman Elementary School.
The Golden Apple recipients were finalists in a teaching award program that resulted in cash prizes presented earlier to five teachers in Carbon, Emery, Sanpete and Sevier County. Arch Coal is the parent company of Utah's largest coal producer, Canyon Fuel Co., which operates the Sufco, Dugout Canyon and Skyline mines.
