State Representative Lynn Wachtmann (R-Napoleon) honored local retiring educator, Pam Wilhelm, on the House floor for her accomplishments achieved throughout her 30 year teaching career.
Pam Wilhelm, an educator at Leipsic Elementary, was the recipient of the Ohio Department of Education’s Outstanding Title I Teacher of the year in 2007. She has also played an integral role in helping Leipsic Elementary meet its Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for their students with disabilities for the past seven years, according to the Ohio Department of Education’s school year report card.
Despite her retirement, Pam Wilhelm will continue to invest in the educational goals of students in her community. Pam and her husband, John, offer a $500 annual scholarship award to outstanding senior mentors who volunteer their time to Project MORE.
