Spring Alumni & Teacher of the Semester Honored

The Galena High School Student Council again had the opportunity to honor two individuals who have made positive impacts on many past and current students.  The Outstanding Alumni for the Spring 2022 semester is Mrs. Jamie Shelton.  Mrs. Shelton was a member of the Class of 1990 and is a huge supporter of Galena Bulldog activities. Not only was Mrs. Shelton one of the greatest cheerleaders for the Bulldogs while her children were competing, but she continues to support the Bulldog teams even after all of her children have graduated. 


Mrs Marcia Smith is the Outstanding Teacher for the Spring 2022 semester.  This is Mrs. Smith’s nineteenth year being in charge of the Gifted program in Galena.  Prior to coming to Galena, she taught Special Education for 7 years in Iola, Kansas, 1 year in Winfield, Kansas, and 3 years in Carthage, Missouri.  Mrs. Smith goes above and beyond to help get her students ready for their future lives, working with them on college preparation as well as making sure they are doing what needs to be done in order to graduate high school. 


Student Council officers making the presentation were Alex Jordan - President, Koby Myers – Vice President, Maddy Cole – Secretary and Malorie Bogle – Utility Officer.


The Outstanding Alumni & Teacher presentations are typically made during the Fall and Spring semester.  If you are interested in nominating an alumni or a teacher to win this award in the future, please click on the link below.
