Verona High School teacher Stacey Smith was selected as an Unsung Hero in the Saint Michael’s College Teacher Recognition Program.

“Through this program, we honor those teachers who provide their students with the academic skills and moral support necessary to be successful in post-secondary pursuits,” said Jerry Flanagan, Saint Michael’s vice president for admission and enrollment management.

Smith was nominated by Margaret Dougherty, who is a graduate of Verona High School and a current first-year student at Saint Michael’s College.

“Dr. Smith deserves this recognition because she meets and exceeds the description of an Unsung Hero,” Dougherty said. “I do not recall a day when she was not excited to see a class or to help a student. She formed true bonds with each of her students. Her love of English mixed with her passion for creativity always made projects fun.”

“We feel very fortunate to have Margaret Dougherty as a member of our community,” VP Flanagan said. “I hope that the best and brightest from Verona High School will continue to come to Saint Michael’s College,” he added.
