Courtney Dreisch Waters, (SOE ‘15) a first-grade teacher at Kempton Elementary School in Frederick County, was selected as the Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) Charles E. Tressler Distinguished Teacher Awardee.

Attending what she believed was a virtual “staff meeting,” FCPS Superintendent, Dr. Theresa Alban, FCPS board members and staff, Kempton Elementary principal, Ms. Kathryn Golightly, colleagues and family surprised Courtney by announcing she was being conferred this honor. We congratulate Courtney for receiving this prestigious award.
