YAKIMA, Wash.--Five Yakima educators were honored with "Crystal Apple" awards Monday.
The Yakima School District and local business leaders have been honoring outstanding educators in the community since 1988.
Rachel Dibble, an Instructional Facilitator at Adams Elementary School, said it's quite an honor to get a Crystal Apple.
"It's just very humbling to be here and to have all these people recognize you," said Dibble. "It seems like you just do your work, so it's very exciting. I so appreciate the people who nominated me and the chance to be here."
Each award comes with a $1,000 prize. Each recipient was nominated by co-workers and was chosen from a pool of 14 candidates.
