Fox Creek High School held its annual Teacher of the Year Banquet on Feb. 25, at the North Augusta Community Center.

The members of the North Augusta Optimist Club sponsored the banquet and provided a wonderful meal before the program. Principal Josh Trahan announced the winners.

The Student of the Year is Mariela Muniz. Mariela is an exemplary student, who is extremely involved in the school and community.

She is currently a senior who is planning to attend USC Aiken in the fall, majoring in secondary education with a minor in political science. She will graduate with honors and was also chosen as Fox Creek’s Foreign Language Student of the Year.

Excellence runs in the family, as Mariela’s mother, Doris Gonzalez, was honored as Teacher of the Year.

Gonzalez has been teaching for more than 30 years, and has been at Fox Creek for seven of those years. She currently teaches Biology 1 and 2. She has two other children who presently reside in Florida.

Julie Williams was named Volunteer of the Year. Williams, along with her husband Ashley, have been a part of the school since its inception. Williams’ kids, Kristen and Jeffrey, graduated from Fox Creek, and Morgan will graduate in June.

Williams has volunteered for many years and has contributed to various clubs and sports at Fox Creek. She is currently serving as president of the Parent Teacher Community Association.

The Professional of the Year was awarded to Travis Gibson. Gibson is employed as the technology director. He is an integral part of the school, helping keep technology up-to-date and running smoothly. He has been a part of the Fox Creek family for six years.

After the presentation of awards, Michelle Ewart conducted a short Optimist Club meeting and adjourned the meeting.
