AVERY EHOVE Career Center English instructor Deedra Fife and auto tech student Doug Lenthe, of Danbury, were honored at the Ottawa County Nine-to-Five Breakfast at Catawba Island Club. The award was established as a means to recognize students in grades 10, 11 and 12 who have demonstrated marked improvement in their educational activities and their instructors who had a part in their positive change during the school year, from September (ninth month) through May (fifth month), "Nine-to-Five."

Lenthe wrote a brief essay about how Fife was instrumental in helping him through high school and life.

"If I needed help with anything, Mrs. Fife was there," wrote Lenthe. "She made class fun and because of this, learning was easy. She is truly a great teacher and has many great qualities. The quality I admire the most about Mrs. Fife, however, is that she treated us all as if we were her own children. She gave me as much care and concern as a mother would for her son."

Lenthe, the son of Tom and Margaret Lenthe, plans to attend a two-year technical college to further his education in the automotive field.

Fife has taught English at EHOVE Career Center since 1998.
