Going above and beyond the call of duty.
That's what earned a Warren High School teacher the February Jan Dils Golden Apple Award.
Students at WHS welcomed Mr. Ryan Werry into the cafeteria with a cheer when the principal told them he was the winner.
Mr. Werry was nominated by one of his former students, who says he takes the time to make sure every student has the chance to succeed.
Mr. Werry says he hopes his students not only learn the lessons, but skills they can use well beyond high school.
He teaches biology and human anatomy and is a former girls basketball coach.
