DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

The Eisenhower Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization in Dubuque announced the winners of its annual Five-Star Awards Friday.

The award is given annually to one teacher and one support staff.

Mary Jo Vogt, a first-grade teacher, took home the Five-Star Teacher award.  Her nominations highlighted her positive and encouraging attitude.

“She has her students in awe, sitting at the edge of their seats awaiting whatever she is getting ready to teach next,” said one nominator.

Sharon Rockwell Dalton, a paraprofessional, won the Five-Star Support Staff Member award.  Her nominations highlighted her inclusiveness and her ability to challenge students to problem-solve.

The Five-Star Awards are inspired by school namesake Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was a five-star general and eventually the 34th president of the United States. The award was initiated to recognize the positive contributions made by the staff.

Selection for the award is based on a nomination process focused on Eisenhower's school-wide focus to make the world a better place by acting responsibly, treating others fairly, showing respect and being good citizen.
