This week's MEA Golden Apple Award winner is one of those who came home.
Ridgecrest Elementary second grade teacher Shacova Edmonds is also a product of the Phenix City school.
She was nominated by parent Avery Pittman who was impressed by Ms. Edmonds ability to handle her second graders, while also overseeing the school's choir.
Some of the Ridgecrest choir members have been nationally recognized, an honor Edmonds says makes her job special.
Congratulations again to teacher Shacova Edmonds this week's MEA Federal Credit Union Golden Apple Award winner.
