Lori Smith Named Outstanding Teacher

Lori Smith Franklin Walter Award
Career X teacher Lori Smith was recognized as the recipient of the Franklin B. Walter Award winner for Ohio State Support Team Region 10. The Franklin B. Walter award is given to an educator or team from each of the 16 State Support Teams in Ohio who have made extraordinary contributions to the education of students with disabilities. This award is given in honor of the late Franklin B Walter, Superintendent of Public Instruction from 1977 until 1991, a post held longer than any other state superintendent in Ohio’s history. With over 50 years of service as a teacher and administrator, Dr. Walter’s leadership is evident in many of Ohio’s quality educational initiatives and programs. Among these is the development of the nation’s first statewide plan for children with disabilities. #greenecountycareercenter #buildingtheworkforce
