Susan Froedge, Holly Walker and Peggy Newton all chose teaching as their career path many years ago.
Now the three also have something else in common: These area teachers will be recognized this month as winners of the ExCEL Award in their respective school systems.
The ExCEL Award is an education honor given to school systems in various Kentucky counties. It is sponsored by WHAS-TV and E.ON. U.S., a Louisville energy company.
