Richards Middle School math teacher Afinju Mcdowell is our latest Kinetic Credit Union Golden Apple award recipient. 

Mcdowell, a 22-year retired Marine Corps veteran, was nominated by his wife Judi who told us that the teacher never knew how much he impacted students until he received a letter from one of them thanking the teacher for all he has done.

Mcdowell told us he was thankful that his wife nominated him.

Kinetics Clint Perkins was also on hand to congratulate Mcdowell.
