Jymi Rafi

Golden Apple

COLUMBUS, Ga. – We love surprising teachers and that’s just what News 3’s Carlos Williams did this week when he honored music teacher Jymi Rafi with the Kinetic Golden Apple Award.

Ms. Rafi, who teaches music at two schools, Rigdon Road Elementary and South Columbus Elementary, was nominated by former student Arianna Marealle.

She told News 3 Ms. Rafi made music fun and that she works hard to make sure her students learn everything they can.

Rafi, a Columbus State University grad says winning the award is one of the highlights of her 20-year career.

Once again Kinetic Credit Union Representative Clint Perkins joined us to help honor this week’s recipient.
