A third-grade teacher at Key Elementary School in Columbus is our latest Kinetic Golden Apple Award Recipient. 

Jeneka Bennett is a Columbus State Graduate, who accepted the award from News 3’s Carlos Williams. 

Bennett was nominated by Phyllis Lloyd-Jones, who told News 3 that Bennett is an asset to the Key Elementary family. 

Bennet was overjoyed to receive the award and talked about what she knows about her school and career. 

“Oh I love it, I love it.   I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else.  I love my faculty, everybody’s like a family.   I have true friends here and I just love the atmosphere, I love being here,” Bennett says.
