PIERCETON — Whitko Middle School teacher Rochelle Leininger was honored at the district’s school board meeting Monday.

However, the recognition didn’t come from school board members or administration, but a parent.

Cathy Juricak works at Raytheon, a company in Fort Wayne. When the corporation offered a grant for teachers, Juricak nominated Leininger for the award.

“She was a teacher to my kids who are now graduated,” said Juricak. “I know how special she was to them and to me as a parent. I thought this was the best way to honor her.”
