A banquet was held in the honor of teachers on Monday, May 6, 2019, which marked the event’s 15th year. The Celebrations of Teaching banquet was held at the Junction City, Kansas Courtyard by Marriott and was hosted by the Geary Community Schools Foundation. The event celebrates the art of teaching and helps to show appreciation for those in the profession during the National Teacher Appreciation Week held this year.
Music for the event was provided by Junction City High School band students which accompanied a slideshow presentation.
The Keynote Speaker for the evening was Warren Schlichting, President of Sling TV, and former student of USD 475.
As done in past years, several giveaways took place at the end of the night which included cash giveaways. This event was made possible by the generations donations of businesses and community members.
Dr. Reginald Eggleston, USD 475 Superintendent of Schools, closed the evening with his thanks to teachers in Geary County Schools.
