The Washington County Community Foundation (WCCF) has named Matthew Cheran, a social studies teacher from Peters Township Middle School, the recipient of this year's Dr. Howard Jack Outstanding Public Educator Award. Criteria for the award are that the educator inspires students of all abilities, has earned the respect of colleagues, students and parents, and is actively engaged in the community.

"Mr. Cheran has an exceptional ability to connect with his students – both inside the classroom and beyond. In addition to making coursework engaging, he provides vital emotional support during what can often be a challenging time for young adolescents," said William M. Campbell, WCCF Chairman. "He truly exhibits the type of professional dedication that the Dr. Howard Jack Outstanding Public Educator Award was created to recognize."

After graduating from Baldwin High School, Cheran attended Penn State University and University of Georgia. Moved by the tragic events of September 11, 2001, he decided to leave his successful career in insurance case management to follow his dream of becoming a teacher. He was hired by Peters Township School District in 2004.
