KAKE News gives out the Golden Apple Award every week to a teacher that makes a positive difference in the KAKEland school. 

This program gives local teachers community-wide recognition for the creative ways they support, motivate and encourage a lifetime of learning in and out of the classroom.

This week's award winner was Mrs. Ashley Strohm of Lincoln Elementary in Augusta. She was nominated by her third-grade student and his family.

"Congratulation Mrs. Strohm, we nominated you for the Golden Apple Award," said Mrs. Storhm's third-grade student on KAKE News. "You are such a great teacher and you're always so proactive and never gave up. You're a great teacher at multiplication. Thank you for being such a great teacher in third grade."

Mrs. Strohm will be getting school supplies from Project Teacher and the Golden Apple trophy from Davis-Moore Auto Group.
