Julia King (Malawi) receives award
Gainesville Ohio City Schools names 2023 Philip Wright Award recipient
Julia King (Malawi 1984-87), a special education teacher at Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy, an elementary school in Gainesville, was honored at Monday’s school board meeting with Gainesville City Schools’ 2023 Philip Wright Award.
“I am humbled and honored to serve our community of deeply caring families and educators,” said King, a speech-language pathologist.
The award is given annually to educators in the Pioneer RESA region, which covers Northeast Georgia.
The award is given annually to educators who demonstrate a strong commitment to improving educational outcomes for students with disabilities.
“I started as a student at Enota Elementary School and grew up and joined the Peace Corps where I worked in Malawi to teach midwives how to treat Malaria using visuals, songs and skits,” King said. “This inspired me to return and earn a masters in speech-language pathology. I returned to Gainesville and followed my dream.”
