Three local teachers recognized as McDonald’s Outstanding Educators

Three local teachers were selected as the second annual 2021 McDonald’s Outstanding Educators from a pool of more than 720 nominations.

The award honors educators who exhibit the ultimate dedication to their students and contribute to the improvement of education in our most challenging times. Local McDonald’s Owner/Operator Rick Mann says recognizing teachers for all they do for the youth in the communities they serve is a top priority for local McDonald’s restaurants.

Shawn Schaefer from Southridge High School, Jamie Clauss from Holy Trinity, and Jeremy Wolf from Jasper Middle School were all awarded a $100 Visa gift card to use toward their classroom; a “Best Teacher Ever!” coffee mug; and McDonald’s coupons to provide to parents with outstanding students throughout the year.

“Our local educators are the definition of perseverance and loyalty. They show up and give their all day after day to make sure our students thrive,” said Mann. “We’re excited to recognize those who go above and beyond for our students through the Outstanding Educator awards.”

Mann and his wife, Susan Mann, own and operate a total of eight McDonald’s restaurants in the area, and they are proud to honor the following Dubois County educators:
