It was a great pleasure to present the first Crystal Apple award of the school season to Laci Gray at Hewitt Trussville Middle School.  The person who nominated her wrote:  “Laci is an excellent teacher who takes her students success personally. She pours her heart and soul into instilling a love for science and our planet within each child. Laci teaches 6th grade earth science and coaches the science Olympiad team.” Thanks to our sponsor, Mark Achuff, co-owner  of the Birmingham Mortgage Group for making the Crystal Apple campaign possible.
