Lions Club seeking teacher nominees

The Nashua Lions Club is looking for nominations for its Teacher of the Year award.

Nominations can be made by anyone. The only requirement is that the person being nominated is a teacher in either a public or private school in Nashua. The deadline is April 26.

“We recognize the fact that there are many teachers in our community doing great things,” said Nashua Lions Club president Raymond Bourque.

Last year’s winner was Betty Burpee, who chose to teach at the city’s alternative middle school after decades as an elementary school teacher. It was the first time the club gave out the award.

Nominations can be mailed to the Nashua Lions Club, Teacher of the Year, P.O. Box 3361, Nashua, NH 03061.
