Congratulations to Don Halquist, also known as "Dr. D", on being named our STAR 101.5 Teacher of the Week!

On Thursday morning, May 6th, STAR 101.5 surprised Salish Coast Elementary School's 2nd grade teacher, Dr. D, with news that he was being honored as our STAR 101.5 Teacher of the Week! Dr. D was nominated by his student Joy and her mom Ashley Quinn.

"Dr. D is a phenomenal teacher. Through some health issues last year, he persevered and continued to be a present, caring teacher," said Ashley. "He goes ABOVE & BEYOND for his students. Each week, he makes paper packets of school work and delivers them to the students. That's right, he drives to every one of his student's houses to drop off a learning packet and pick up the prior week's work. Dr. D is a magical teacher who makes learning fun and makes each of his students feel special."

Dr. D received a $101.50 check from STAR 101.5 and the Washington State Potato Commission, and a personalized plaque from Trophies2Go. Each student also received a goody bag full of prizes from STAR 101.5 and the Washington State Potato Commission.
