September “Excellence in Education” Award Winner-Ms. Janice Junker


Marty Manning from radio station KEZ, a STA Alum (Class of '59), was thrilled to come back on campus and surprise a teacher! He presented the “Excellence in Education” award to Ms. Junker and thanked her for 15 years of service preparing our students for high school and beyond. Ms. Junker tells her students and parents, “Literacy is the most important skill for students to master both in school and in life. It is my hope that I both prepare my students for high school and instill in them a love for reading and writing.” Marty shared many great STA stories with our students: conjugating Latin verbs and caring the candles as an altar server during the dedication of the church when our church was in what is now Parish Hall!
