George Theodore of Lincoln Elementary is an avid golfer, a former MLB player for the New York Mets, and has spent the better part of 30 years as a counselor at the school.
Generations of Lincoln Elementary students have benefitted from George’s expertise and dedication. As principal Afton Lambson put it: “Everybody knows George.”
George was recently announced as the South Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce Educator of the Year. The announcement came as no surprise to George’s colleagues, current and former students, and Lincoln Elementary parents.
