In 2012, the K-12 Foundation in collaboration with David DePeal of Hair Productions, Havasu Fitness, and Shugrue’s Family Restaurants. as a way to recognize teachers and reward educators’ dedication in our local school district. They joined with the K-12 Foundation for LHUSD #1 in creating the Golden Apple Award. Educator and K-12 Board member, Sherry Dailey helped establish the “Golden Apple” award, prior to her passing. The name of the award was renamed in Sherry’s honor.

The Sherry Dailey Golden Apple Award is awarded monthly during the school year to an exceptional teacher or staff member who demonstrates selfless dedication and excellence in their work. Each award recipient is chosen by the peers of their school. Since it’s inception, other businesses have joined us in being part of this award. Currently Hair Productions, Shugrue’s, Carol Marshall’s Salon & Day Spa, The Human Bean, Smallcakes Cupcakery & Creamery, College Street Brewhouse and Radio Central provide gifts to the recipient as well as receiving a plaque from the K-12 Foundation in recognition of their achievement.
