Instructor Anniversary Recognition (May 2021)

As ALHS Online (ALHSO) transitions to Amazing Grace Virtual Academy (AGVA), it wants to recognize ten instructors that have faithfully taught ALHSO courses for five or more years!

The following have met this milestone and were presented with a letter from the ALHSO Board of Directors and a monetary gift as a way of saying “Thank You” for their dedicated service to their students over the years.

Dr. Paul Boehlke: 9 years (Human Anatomy & Physiology, AP Environmental Science)

Mr. Joshua Schoeneck: 8 years (AP Computer Science, Computer Graphics)

Rev. Greg Bork: 7 years (Introduction to Psychology, AP Psychology)

Dr. Kari Muente: 7 years (AP U.S. History, World Regional Geography)

Mrs. Jean Neitzel: 7 years (German 1-3)

Mrs. (Alta) Mae Tacke: 7 years (Introduction to Multimedia, Game Programming 1-2)

Mrs. Angela Hanson: 6 years (Spanish)

Rev. Karl Peterson: 6 years (Religion, Latin 1-4)

Rev. Dr. Mark Lenz: 5 years (Life of Christ, How the Church Grows)

Mrs. Amy Springborn: 5 years (Spanish)

AGVA will continue the recognition award program by recognizing instructors when they meet five-year incremental years of service. Past service as ALHSO instructors will count toward cumulative years of service for future AGVA recognition awards.
