2018 PEPPer Award

Steven and Judy Smith of Treasure Lake, DuBois, are the 2018 recipients of the DuBois Area Education Association’s PEPPer Award, which stands for Public Education Partners and Promoters. The Smiths have promoted and helped to fund dozens of the DAEA’s teachers’ Donors Choose projects. Because of this couple, hundreds of DuBois Area School District students have enjoyed technology, books, and other materials in their classrooms. Originally from the state of Indiana, the Smiths have called this area home for many years, having moved to DuBois in 1997. They have three grown daughters and sons-in-law, and they proudly dote on three grandchildren who live in the Washington, D.C. area. Their support of the arts is fueled by the fact that their daughters were involved in band when they were in school.
