Fugett Middle School was recently named a "School with Heart" and received a $500 check from Citadel Bank's Heart of Learning Award.

Each year, Chester County students, parents, and community members nominate a deserving teacher who stands above the rest. The top three schools that submit the most nominations are awarded the "Schools with Heart" award which includes a cash prize. Fugett came in third place out of all Chester County schools for the most teacher nominations.

The Citadel Heart of Learning Award was created in 2001 by Citadel and the Chester County Intermediate Unit.

Each year 15 finalists are selected from the nominations. All finalists receive $500 to use in their classroom and are honored at the Citadel Heart of Learning Awards banquet in May. Three winners are selected from the 15 finalists – one high school, one middle school, and one elementary school teacher. Each winner will receive an additional $1,500 to use in their classroom.
