PHS Teachers Recognized By Freedoms Foundation At Valley Forge

Lynda Shanahan and Carolyn Schultz, special needs teachers at Pennsauken High School, are being recognized by the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge, a nonpartisan educational institution that teaches about American rights and responsibilities, honors acts of civic virtue, and challenges all to get involved.

Shanahan and Schultz will receive the organization’s National Awards – George Washington Honor Medal for creating the Life Skills Program to promote citizenship, patriotism and civic responsibility among students through volunteerism, service learning and community service.

“The Life Skills Program exemplifies the essence of the National Awards: promotion of an understanding and appreciation for our country’s rich heritage, principles, and rich freedoms,” says Wally Nunn, national board chairman of the Freedoms Foundation.

The two Pennsauken High School teachers will receive the award during the Freedoms Foundation’s annual gala on Saturday, Feb. 17.
