Pam Kettelson is a Mathematics teacher at Central Academy Middle School. She was honored as Botetourt Kiwanis Educator of the Year at the October school board meeting on Thursday night Oct. 10. Kettelson was nominated by a fellow teacher who said “Pam is the best Math teacher I have ever worked with. She has worked with students below grade level in skill and brought them back to grade level and beyond…she also teaches Algebra and Geometry at CAMS.”
Kettelson remarked, “This is not a job anyone can do alone, I have excellent support from faculty and administration.” Kiwanis president Doug Ross and Jim Bushong of Botetourt Kiwanis made the presentation along with a check for $500 made out to Kettelson “To use anyway she would like,” said Bushong.
Every year, the Botetourt Kiwanis Club presents an Award to the outstanding teacher or counselor nominated by peers and evaluated by a Kiwanis Committee
