Secondary teacher of the year: Genoways honored at Archdiocesan dinner


Each year, schools and parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Omaha nominate individuals who demonstrate a superior devotion to Catholic education for the Archdiocesan teacher of the year award.

Last spring, students, faculty and staff at Marian were delighted to hear that science teacher Mrs. Sharon Genoways would be one of two recipients of the Archdiocesan Teacher of the Year Award for Secondary Education.

On Sept. 29, Genoways and the other outstanding educators in Nebraska were honored at the The 39th Annual Archbishop’s Dinner for Education.Several Marian staff members and students, along with many of Genoways’s family members, attended the dinner to support Genoways and recognize her dedication to her profession. “Being surrounded by both my real family and my Marian family meant more to me than receiving the actual award,” Genoways said.

At the dinner, which was held at the Embassy Suites in La Vista, Archbishop George Lucas honored eight individuals for their exemplary work in administration, elementary education, secondary education, special education and inner city education, respectively.
