The 2019 Excellence in Teaching has been awarded to Mrs. Jayna Fox. Fox is an English and journalism teacher at PRP. Mrs. Fox has been teaching at Pleasure Ridge Park High School for ten years. Fox will be admitted into the Hall of Fame at Pleasure Ridge Park.
“It is an honor to be given this award; I couldn’t imagine myself at another school,” said Teacher Jayna Fox.
The award is an anonymous vote from Fox’s co-workers. Teachers were to nominate a co-worker that works hard, and excels at his/her job. Fox goes out of her way to make sure her students succeed. Fox teaches advanced classes, and she provides students with a rigorous layout to prepare them for college. Fox has designed a huge social issues project, which students will present to the Jefferson County Public Schools board members.
“The students will always be my ‘sweet angel babies’ as I tell them regularly,” said Jayna Fox.
Each year, the PRP Alumni Association hosts a dinner where notable graduates and supporters are inducted into the PRP Hall of Fame. All proceeds benefit a scholarship fund awarded to PRP seniors.
