Golden Apple Principal surprised in Rockford

Posted: Updated:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Congratulations to the 2018 Golden Apple Principal Mrs. Amber Miller of Maud E. Johnson Elementary 

Mrs. Miller had to be lied to so she could get her award. 

She was sitting in meetings when her staff called and said a disgruntled parent was at the school with the media. 

But there was no disgruntled parent waiting for her, just a room full of staff and students to celebrate her. 


"Since the day I stepped into a classroom I have not let that passion go. So this has been very overwhelming and touching at the same time. To see that you come in, you do your thing every day, but it doesn't go unnoticed and that's amazing," said Miller. 


A banquet will be held later this month to honor Mrs. Miller and the other five Golden Apple Award winners.
