The Chardon Board of Education, together with the Chardon Education Association (CEA), hosted the district’s Annual Recognition Dinner on Monday, May 2nd at Legend Lake Golf Club. It was a special evening of fellowship and inspiration as we honored outstanding volunteer/school supporters and recognized teachers and administrators who are celebrating milestone years in their careers. There were no retiring educators to recognize this year, but Hambden teacher, Coleen Williams, who is celebrating 35 years of teaching, received a well-earned standing ovation.
