CCHS teacher Jennifer Ernstberger has been named one of the 2021 McDonald's Outstanding Educators out of a pool of more than 720 nominations.
Winners of the outstanding educator award receive a $100 Visa gift card to use toward their classroom, a "Best Teacher Ever!" coffee mug, and McDonald's coupons to provide to parents with outstanding students.
"Mrs. Ernstberger is a perfect example of what it means to be a Laker. She has always taken a leadership role here at CCHS. She always goes above and beyond for not only the students in her classroom, but for all students," said CCHS principal Chris King.
Local McDonald's Owner Michael Love Jr. said recognizing teachers for all they do is a top priority for local McDonald's restaurants.
"Our local educators are the definition of perseverance and loyalty. They show up and give their all day after day to make sure our students thrive," said Love, Jr. "We're excited to recognize those who go above and beyond for our students through the Outstanding Educator awards."
Love, Jr. and his father and fellow McDonald's Owner, Mike Love, partnered with other local McDonald's operators, including Michael Burrell, Kelsey Hamlet, Chris McEnaney, Joe McEnaney, and Kathy McEnaney, to honor area educators.
