Local Catholic school teacher wins national award
Mrs. Mary Ann Mecher, a fourth grade teacher at Our Lady of Victory School in Delhi Township, was recently named as recipient of the 2013 Distinguished Teacher Award by the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA). Mrs. Mecher was recognized for her outstanding commitment to the religious, academic, and social formation of her students. She will receive her award on April 2 during the NCEA’s annual convention in Houston.
“Mrs. Mecher is an exceptional educator who has earned a reputation as a master teacher,” reports Superintendent Dr. Jim Rigg. “She is a wonderful testimony of the high quality of instructors found amongst our Catholic schools.”
