GHS Student Council Honors Alumni & Teacher of the Semester

Prior to the Galena-Prairie View football game, the Galena High School Student Council honored two individuals who have made a positive impact on the lives of many past and present GHS Students. 

The first presentation was to the Outstanding Alumni of the Semester, Mr. Kenny Shelton.  Mr. Shelton was a member of the Class of 1984.  Over the years, he has coached many of the Galena youth in both football and baseball.  He has also worked with several youths individually to try to help them to become more successful.  He is a devoted Bulldog fan and has cheered on many of his former Bulldog athletes, as well as his children, in their sporting activities throughout the years. 

The final presentation was to the Outstanding Teacher of the Semester, Ms. Sydney Shannon.  Ms. Shannon is in her fourth year of teaching in the Galena School District.  She currently teaches middle school and high school vocal music, Piano, Music Appreciation, and Drama.  She is also in charge of the school play and is a member of the Cherokee County Arts Association.   


Congratulations to both Mr. Shelton and Ms. Shannon for their awards.  The picture plaques they were presented will hang in the entrance hall at the high school for the next year.  Their names will also be listed on the continuous Alumni and Teacher of the Semester plaques that will remain hanging in the GHS entrance hall.
