About the Silver Apple Award

Don Bliss, class of 1950, established the Silver Apple Award in honor of his wife, Roxanne Waldhauser Bliss, class of 1951. During his career as a U. S. West Executive, Don would ask other executives who were the most influential people in their lives. Almost always a teacher would be one of the top influences. Most often, we have become adults before we realize the importance of a special teacher or staff member who has had a lasting influence on our lives. This endowed award was established to encourage students to appreciate educators or support staff who are especially important to them.
