Yurk is one of only four private/parochial school educators nationwide to receive the honor.
Receiving the “Emerson Excellence in Teaching Award” Nov. 12 in St. Louis were fourth-grade teacher Brenda Doering and high school chemistry teacher Rich Langefeld.
The event for educators is set for March 11–13 in Orlando.
The award honors a pastor who provides “outstanding encouragement, support and service to his school.”
The accreditation process requires lengthy evaluation and self-study.
The “crowdfunding” project is accepting donations of $1 or more through June 16.
