Alumni & Teacher of the Semester Honored

Each semester the Galena High School Student Council sponsors Outstanding Alumni and Outstanding Teacher awards.  These awards are given to two individuals who have made a positive impact on the lives of many past and present GHS students.  Those receiving the honors for the Spring 2021 semester are Mr. Cade Stapleton - Outstanding Alumni and Mrs. Shonda Potter - Outstanding Teacher.  Mr. Stapleton was a member of the Class of 2014 and is a huge supporter of all things Galena High School. He works for the USD #499 school district and helps provide our students with a positive learning environment. Additionally, he demonstrates a strong work ethic for the students and often times can be heard singing or whistling while he works!  Mrs. Potter is in her eighteenth year teaching kindergarten in the Galena School District.  She has helped countless students get off on the right foot at the beginning of their education.  She is also a member of the district KESA committee.   


The presentation was made by Student Council officers Riley McNemar-President, Laekyn Clarkson-Vice President, MaKenzie Grey-Secretary, and Malorie Bogle-Utility Officer,


Congratulations, Mr. Stapleton and Mrs. Potter, and thank you for everything you do for our students!!!
