By  | 

PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - The May, 2017 Jan Dils Golden Apple Award Winner, and the last one for this school year, is Pam McClain, choir director at Parkersburg High School.

Pam has been a teacher for just over 30 years.

Her Acapella Choir just returned to Parkersburg from Nashville Tennessee, where they received a perfect score in a national competition, along with other awards.

McClain says everything in the Fine Arts Department is a team effort.

“This award is something that I want to share. It's not about me, it’s not about my teaching expertise, but it's a team sport in my field. Even though it's not a sport, the Fine Arts means that students and teachers are a team. You know, it's not an easy era to become a teacher and so many students have so many needs. But if you have the heart and desire to make someone's life more inspired, then you need to be a teacher.”
