This week's Apple goes to Pamela Papendick, a Spanish teacher at Wichita Collegiate.
KAKE's Jeff Herndon surprised Mrs. Papendick and her class. Dawson Grimsley of Davis Moore Auto presented the Golden Apple and Papa John's Pizza donated $250 for a pizza party.
For Mrs. Papendick the best thing about teaching is her students, but there are other reasons as well.
"The second best thing is when they come back," Mrs. Papendick says. "They show you their kids, or invite you to graduation. That's the best thing...to know you made a difference. That's one of the most rewarding things that I can think of... It feeds the soul. Teaching feeds the soul."
Congratulations to Pamela Papendick of Wichita Collegiate.
