Golden Apple Award Winner

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The Golden Apple Awards recognize educators for excellence. One of the awards this year goes to one of Skyview's guidance counselors, Tina Boone.

Tina has worked at Skyview for 14 years and is involved in many activities outside of guidance counseling, like the soccer team. The students who nominated her said she's made a positive impact at the high school.

"It's kind of hard to find people like Tina nowadays," said Tyler Hull, a junior. "Like some teachers, some just want to lecture, some like handing out the assignments. But it's always nice to have somebody just there for you and who cares about what we're doing."

"She always talks to us," said Xander Muessig, a senior. "That's what I think is the most important thing, is to sit down and actually have a conversation with somebody instead of like looking at their grades or what classes they were in so she's always helping with that, like getting individually what you want to do."

Tina said being nominated came as a shock.

"That's everything because that's why you're here," she said. "You know, they're so inspirational to me alone when they take the time to do that. You know you've made a difference. That's amazing. That's the best feeling in the world."

Award recipients will be honored at a banquet on April 24 at the Crowne Plaza at 6 PM.
