WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM)- A Wyoming school will receive a national award Thursday for proving that students from lower income and more diverse backgrounds can succeed.
North Godwin Elementary School is one of five schools receiving a "Dispelling the Myth" award from The Educational Trust. Principal Bill Fetterhoff says the group based their decision on Godwin's high MEAP scores and consistent academic progress. Fetterhoff credits the teachers' dedication and strong concern for students.
"Oh, I'm very proud. I'm proud but I've always been proud of this staff. I think it's an incredible group that learned to work collaboratively. They have the greatest empathy for our students and parents. We're fortunate that we have parents that value education and support us and working together. It's just a magical team," says Fetterhoff.
