2020 Golden Pear Finalists Announced

The Medford School District is pleased to announce the 2020 Golden Pear Finalists

The purpose of Golden Pear Awards is to celebrate the amazing work of MSD educators, those changing the lives of students every day. This is the fourth year of the Golden Pear program. 

This year, 200 nominations came in from staff, families, students, and community members. A committee made up of retired educators, parents, and community members went through a process to determine this year’s finalists: ten classroom teachers, four classified staff, and two other support staff.

Winners will be announced at this year’s gala at the Inn at the Commons in Medford on May 15, 2020. More details and ticket information will be coming soon. 

Winners receive $1,500 for professional development or to spend on their school staff room. They will also ride in the Pear Blossom Parade and be honored at the annual Medford/Jackson County Chamber Awards.

We could not put this event together without our sponsors. Thank you to Harry & David, Medford Schools Foundation, Medford/Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, Neuman Hotel Group, Medford Education Association, and the Oregon School Employees Association.

Please join us in congratulating this year’s finalists!
