The Kiwanis Club of Burbank celebrated the achievements of Burbank teachers during its May 6 luncheon meeting.

Nineteen outstanding educators were honored during a program that has been a tradition for Kiwanis for a good many years. The honorees were selected by their school’s principal because they exemplify dedication and are involved in activities that go beyond their teaching duties.

They each received certificates of recognition from Assemblyman Paul Krekorian, Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich, and Rep. Adam Schiff, as well as $100 gift certificates from the Noon Kiwanis to purchase materials for their classrooms.
