Background on the Awards

  • The recently established Teacher Award Committee of CTK (the “Committee”) seeks to recognize and encourage those members of the Christ the King Catholic High School (“CTK”) staff who are most impactful in inspiring and helping our students to be their best.
  • The Committee’s hope is that these awards will validate, motivate and inspire our current and future CTK educators.
  • The Committee seeks to do this in a meaningful way. To that end, annually we hope to propose 4 awards of $5,000 each.
  • Potential recipients will be nominated by members at large in our community.

The Crusader Jack Peele for Excellence in Teaching Awards are intended to inspire and honor Christ the King Catholic High School’s staff to excel in their role as educators and mentors. Additionally, we seek to engage our entire community in this process by allowing for an open nominations process and to announce the awards at graduation. Via the Crusader Jack Peele Award for Excellence in Teaching Award, the Committee aims to establish a tradition of encouraging and rewarding excellence in an effort to further the overall educational and spiritual growth and achievement of CTK and all its students.
