Three Pulaski Community School District teachers – Jeff Gosse, Mallory Lichon and Lindsey Przybylski -- are winners of 2019 Greater Green Bay Chamber of Commerce Golden Apple Awards.
They received the awards in surprise ceremonies Thursday in front of district leaders, students and their families.
This year, eight area teachers were selected through a multi-level screening of anonymous applications and personal interviews. Selection criteria are based on the National Board of Professional Teaching standards, which identify the essential knowledge, skills and dispositions expected of experienced, quality teachers.

Mallory Lichon teaches in the Family and Consumer Science Department at PHS. She also coaches PCMS volleyball and is a PHS softball coach. She earned a bachelor’s degree in family and consumer science education from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
Lindsey Przybylski is an art teacher at PCMS. She is also a 2008 PHS graduate. She earned bachelor’s degrees in art education and design arts from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
“On behalf of the outstanding educators at the Pulaski Community School District, I am proud to congratulate these three fantastic teachers as well as their peers who are being honored as nominees or teachers of distinction through the Greater Green Bay Chamber of Commerce Partners in Education Golden Apple Awards,” said Supt. Bec Kurzynske. “The Pulaski Community School District is a special place because of the people and we are humbled by the public recognition of members of our team.”
