Awards and Scholarships
LEE FLAXER AWARD
The Lee Flaxer award is given in the spirit of Lee Flaxer, who served as principal of Heights Elementary School for many years. Lee Flaxer was an outstanding leader who demonstrated that compassion and caring were essential to a positive learning atmosphere. The recipient of this award should be a person who has had an impact on the lives of children through dedication and personal involvement.
We encourage educators and members of our community to consider nominating an individual whom they believe has made a continuing and significant impact on the lives of children. The award is not limited to teachers, but also to any individual who has made an impact either within the Sharon Public Schools or within the town generally.
