Theresa Paplin School Students Create Awards for Educators Sorority

December 29, 2021 / SCO News

The National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, a sorority for educators, commissioned Theresa Paplin School’s Dream Factory to create the awards they gave out to essential workers, Sorority of the Year, and scholarship recipients at their Annual Luncheon.

The Dream Factory is a printing, laminating, and laser shop where students are able to design and produce flyers, wide-format posters, t-shirts and more as well as engrave nameplates and signage. Students learn computer technology, design software, and a variety of business and technical skills that they are able to apply outside the classroom.

Led by Vocational and Technology Teacher Joe Levy, the Dream Factory is part of the Theresa Paplin School (TPS) curriculum. Theresa Paplin School is SCO’s residential school for adolescents and young adults with a serious emotional disturbance and developmental delays.

The National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa was thrilled that their annual awards were created by TPS students.
