Stephenville Masonic Lodge No. 267 recently honored two Stephenville High School graduates and one outstanding educator. Scotta Faulkenberry and Chase Vineyard were each awarded a $1,000 scholarship.
This year was somewhat unique. The Masons usually award just one scholarship each year, but because of their successful turkey fundraiser last Thanksgiving, they collected enough funds to honor two students. Faulkenberry and Vineyard will use the scholarships to help them on their way to college.
And the Masons weren’t done there. Krista Todd, a second grade teacher at Chamberlin Elementary, was awarded The Lamar Award of Excellence for Personal Achievement. She was chosen during the 2011-2012 school year, and was nominated by principals at each of the Stephenville ISD’s six campuses. They were asked to select someone who they considered to be a highly successful educator and deeply devoted to their students. Barry Cavitt, principal at Chamberlin, adds, “(She has) always shown a great deal of passion for her students and their learning abilities. Her goal is to provide her students with the ultimate learning experience by providing a nurturing, safe and challenging learning environment. She is at the forefront of initiating and implementing innovative and new ideas in her classroom. She is looked up to by her peers, students, parents and administration.”
Masonic Lodge No. 267 gives out a variety of awards each year, including the Lamar Scholarships, Lamar Medals for Teachers, and the Community Builders Award.
