Elizabeth Farren, a teacher and Math Department chair at Monsignor Bonner and Archbishop Prendergast Catholic High School in Drexel Hill, has been selected to receive the Delaware County Excellence in Teaching Award.
Each year the award is given to 19 recipients out of all public, nonpublic and intermediate unit teachers in Delaware County.
The award honors outstanding performance as a classroom teacher and demonstration of a commitment to education that extends beyond the normal job requirements. This includes time and effort spent on extracurricular projects and activities that benefit children in general.
Farren will be honored at the Partners in Education Celebration on April 30 at Drexelbrook Corporate Events Center in Drexel Hill. She will receive a cash award for herself and the school.
The event is sponsored primarily by the Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
