Two Charlotte County Public Schools teachers have been named recipients of the Florida Delta Kappa Gamma Education Foundation, which provides funding for activities that support educational excellence for students and professional development for educators.

Lemon Bay High School teacher Stacy DeWolfe was awarded funding to attend the graduate-level course “Set Theory," which now will be taught online through Florida Gulf Coast University. This program will allow DeWolfe to teach college-level math to advanced students in their senior year. DeWolfe, who has been with the district for 20 years with 16 of those at LBHS, also is a member of the Gamma Nu chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma in Charlotte County. 

Port Charlotte High's Pam Ayers was awarded a grant for a project titled “First Chapter Fridays – Literature Circles in the High School Curriculum," which she hopes will foster a love of learning and literature by reading young adult novels. Ayers, also a 16-year veteran at Port Charlotte High School, has been with the district for 26 years.
