Golden Apple winners

2018 Golden Apple Award winners

Jackson Chamber honored educators and PIE Partners with its annual Education Recognition program held during its Quarterly Membership Breakfast on May 4 at the Jackson Country Club. Golden Apple Awards were presented to schools and business Partners in Education (PIE) to show appreciation. The Bank of Jackson is the chamber’s Partners in Education sponsor. Gary Grisham, Bank of Jackson’s chairman and CEO, addressed the crowd and Krissy DeAlejandro with TNAchieves was the speaker.

Golden Apple Awards are given to a business or education partner that has performed at least 10 activities for their partner or partners. Information must be reported in writing to Vicki Bunch prior to the deadline in order for a Golden Apple Award to be given.

This event was sponsored by the Bank of Jackson, which also handed out a $500 award by random drawing from among Golden Apple school award recipients to Pope School. In two other random drawings from among the Golden Apple Award winners, Madison Country Farm Bureau and TennCare Kids were winners. Madison Country Farm Bureau won a promotional package from the Jackson Chamber that consisted of advertisements on Thomas Media - WWYN/WFKX/WHHM/WZDQ/WJAK, a member connection in the chamber’s video newsletter and one week advertisement in the Jackson Chamber’s Highlights email. TennCare Kids won a “Ticket Package” consisting of four tickets to three Generals games for the 2018 season, plus two tickets to the next Quarterly Membership Breakfast.
