Hunlock Creek, PA— The Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce held their annual Young Professionals Awards at the Garden Drive-In. The awards highlight the area’s best and brightest young professionals across 8 categories, plus additional awards recognizing a local business that develops its talent and special honors.
The PA CareerLink ® in Luzerne County and the Luzerne/Schuylkill Workforce Development Board are proud and excited to share that our very own Jonathan Kadjeski has been named the 2020 Educator of the Year!
“I was humbled by the nomination and am incredibly proud to have received the award. Personally, it is an incredible capstone to my time working as the GED Instructor and a tangible reminder of the immediate impact we have on the lives of the people we serve,” Kadjeski said. “Of course, I share my pride with the team I worked with and with the students, who know just how great their triumphs are. Most importantly though, I was proud that I could help bring recognition to adult education and other non-traditional educational journeys. This kind of teaching is so pure, because it is so uplifting for individuals and it, in its own small way, helps repair the world.”
