The lake in the heart of the Edinboro University campus is Mallory Lake, named after long-time ‘Boro Professor Royce Mallory. Tonight, we honor Mallory’s Grandson, Sean Mallory, with this week’s Golden Apple Award.
Sean is a 10th grade US history teacher at Conneaut Area Senior High School in Linesville. You could say education is in his DNA, “I come from a family of teachers.”
Mallory started his career in the US Air Force, which gives him life experience, perspective, and stories to share with his students.
He says he likes to personalize the content and take things to a new level.
Elisabeth Cunningham nominated Mr. Mallory for the Golden Apple Award. Not for his stories and anecdotes that help her learn US history, and certainly not for the stern voice he uses when needed, but maybe more so for how he makes her feel.
She says he puts her in a better mood if she’s having a bad day and that he can be “really fun”.
Congratulations, Sean Mallory, this week’s JET 24 Edinboro University Golden Apple Award Winner.
