J.D. Hughes of Mirror Lake Elementary School has been named Southern District Elementary Physical Education Teacher of the Year by SHAPE America. He will be honored at the National Convention and Expo, to be held March 17-21 in Seattle.

“Coach Hughes carefully and uniquely provides the setting for children of all ages to grab hold of a healthier lifestyle,” says Susan Calderara, principal of Mirror Lake Elementary School. “He successfully facilitates a popular early-morning fitness club for children in second through fifth grades. The before-school F.I.T.T. Club continues to increase in participation, which has decreased the number of students arriving late to school.”

“We are very proud of J. D. Hughes and know that he is most deserving of this recognition,” said Douglas County Superintendent Dr. Gordon Pritz.

Congratulations Mr. Hughes!
