A teacher who instructs every local elementary student was named the Park County School District No. 1 Teacher of the Year.
Marsha Neubert has taught for 25 years. She spent most of her career in the gymnasium as a P.E. instructor. Seven years ago, she made the transition to become the full-time health teacher for Powell’s elementary schools.
Powell takes pride in its trees. For nearly 25 years, Powell has been named a “Tree City USA” by the National Arbor Foundation for demonstrating a commitment to caring for its public trees.
As Mayor Don Hillman’s Arbor Day proclamation has declared in the past: “Trees in our city increase property values, enhance the economic vitality of business areas and beautify our community ... trees are a source of joy.”
