CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - This week's Golden Apple Award winner is Steve Carleton. Carleton teaches Introduction to Engineering at Conway High School.
Carleton was absent when our WMBF News crew arrived at the school to surprise him with the Bi-Lo basket of apples, but students had plenty to say about their teacher.
"To be honest, he is a very fun teacher to work with; he takes his time to actually get to know the students, and he works with you on projects," said Leverne Thomas, a student. "We all love Mr. Carleton, and we are thankful to have him."
Carleton was nominated by the parent of two of his former students. The parent said Carleton encourages students and gives and gets respect. The parent also said it's because of him his daughter gained confidence to take on a more difficult college curriculum and has been excelling ever since.
