EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- For the second straight year, WEAU 13 News is partnering with the Eau Claire Public Schools Foundation to honor one educator from all 20 public schools in the district with a Golden Apple Award.

Holly Larson, partnership coordinator at Longfellow Elementary School, has been a steady influence for students, parents and the community. Known as the "Dealmaker", Larson received a huge ovation and a thank-you banner from the student body for being such a positive role model.

"To have that position that creates these partnerships that have the good of our school and the community always in the back of our minds and working towards that goal of to all make us better people benefits us all,” said Larson.

"She is the queen dealmaker, if there's a barrier in the way she'll come back four or five times with can we do it this way, can we do it that way. So, her biggest strengths are making connections across the community and getting over barriers to benefit everyone at Longfellow,” said Sarah Lynch, Longfellow principal.

Larson and Longfellow will receive a $1,000 grant from the Eau Claire Public Schools Foundation, and Larson will get to use $500 for her classroom.
