Kathy Rohrs, Chaminade’s middle school music teacher, will receive the Creative Arts Teacher Award at the 13th Annual Unforgettable Educator Recognition Dinner, on Thursday, April 18 at the Odyssey restaurant in Granada Hills. Presented by the Chatsworth/Porter Ranch Chamber of Commerce and Facey Medical Group, the dinner celebrates and honors local teachers and school administrators whose dedication and active role in the community inspire and motivate their students to grow, learn, excel and give back.
The chamber reached out and asked the community to nominate the individuals they strongly believe deserve to be recognized. The Creative Arts Teacher award is one of several awards that will be presented, in addition to, the Unforgettable Educator Award, Principal of the Year Award, Science and Technology Teacher Award, and PTA President of the Year Award.
