Golden Apple of the Year: Joshua Carpenter


By Jamie Langley

It's that time of year again... Time to recognize that very special teacher who has made an outstanding impact in the classroom... The Golden Apple Teacher of the Year.


Not only is Joshua Carpenter motivating students, but he is motivated himself.

He's a a part of Teach for America, is a Rhodes Scholar and will pursue his master's degree next year from Oxford University in London, and was an intern for President Barack Obama.

So, this year's Golden Apple Teacher has quite a number of distinguished accomplishments to account for.... but for students in Perry County, one of the greatest accomplishments is the astronomic impact he has had on their lives.
