Ten faculty members across Long Island were awarded with Golden Apple Awards presented by March of Dimes to recognize their commitment to education.

Who knows why, but a polished apple has always been the go-to gift for a great teacher, and over the years the fruit has become a symbol for education and learning. The March of Dimes takes that idea one step further with its annual Golden Apple Awards, presented this year to 10 outstanding local individuals who have made a difference through their commitment to education. Now in its 15th year, the Golden Apple Awards Gala was held at Fox Hollow in Woodbury on November 3.

The 2011 honorees were:

Roger Tilles, member, NYSED Board of Regents, presented the awards, and committee co-chairwomen included Barbara Fahlbusch, M.S. Ed., kindergarten teacher at Locust Valley Central School District, and Kathleen Velsor, Ed.D., associate professor at SUNY College of Old Westbury.

The gala raised more than $58,000 for prenatal wellness programs, research grants, advocacy efforts, and a Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Family Support® program at Stony Brook University Medical Center. All of these initiatives will help to foster stronger, healthier babies and aid in the effort to decrease the more than 31,000 premature births that occur in our state each year, which often result in death or lifelong disabilities.
