Chris Swanson, a counselor at Bremerton High School recently was awarded with the 2013 Secondary Educator of the Year award. Swanson was one of only two nominees in the state for the award.
He was recognized earlier this month in front of the Bremerton School Board of Education by American Legion Post No. 149.
Swanson was grateful for the award and said it was an honor for him to be selected.
“While it is truly an honor to be selected as the American Legion Secondary Educator of the Year, I strongly believe that such recognition is a reflection of the high quality team of caring and dedicated professionals we have at Bremerton High School,” he said.
“I feel very fortunate to work with an amazing counseling office staff, Career and Technical Education staff, teachers, administrators and support staff. “
Patty Glaser, community relations coordinator for the Bremerton School District stated that “scoring for this award is, in part, based on the individual’s time and commitment to their professional career, community service, family commitment and letters of recommendation and support.”
