For the 28th time the Project Excellence Committee of the Area Progress Council of Warren County will honor excellence in teaching within the public schools in Warren County.  Project Excellence is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) foundation; funded solely through generous contributions of supportive Warren County individuals, industries and businesses.  The two winners for Wayne Local Schools this year are Cady Bunn and Leah Hellemann.
Both Mrs. Bunn and Mrs. Hellemann are known for their impact on science education.  Fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Bunn has long been connected to the elementary science fair.  She has organized the event, obtained judges, and motivated students to enter a science fair project as a means to experience the scientific method first hand.  Additionally this year, Cady has taken on the social studies curriculum associated with the new 4th grade social studies testing.  A Waynesville graduate and former student told the committee that “Mrs. Bunn has a caring attitude, a willingness to impact student lives, while being enthusiastic.”  Mrs. Hellemann is known for the ability to challenge her students.  She is seen by students as genuine, authentic, and sincere as she models consistency and high commitment.  She has a passion for her job and science. 

 Students have experienced many wonderful educational opportunities such as the Little Miami River Project and trips to the Caribbean.  A Waynesville student told the committee regarding Mrs. Hellemann, “I never had a teacher push me to excel as much as she has.”  This will be Leah’s last year at Waynesville High School; she recently submitted her resignation for the purpose of retirement to the board of education.  There is a sign outside of Leah’s classroom that states – “Today I will…. Finish Strong!”  Mrs. Hellemann has truly finished strong and we wish her much happiness with future endeavors.  

Cady and Leah will be honored at an awards ceremony on Wednesday, May 6th, 2015.  The awards begin at 6:00 p.m. followed by a buffet dinner.  The entire event is hosted and catered by the Warren County Career Center.


One of the issues on the ballot will be the Warren County Career Center replacement levy that was originally passed 35 years ago (1979).  For more information go to www.supportwccc.org
