Congratulations to the February, 2019 Jan Dils' Golden Apple Award winner: Rick Dobson, who teaches physical education, archery, boys track and basketball at Kanawha Elementary School in Wood County.

Dobson says he's been coaching since his own children were little, but has only been teaching for 8 years.

After retiring from the U.S. Marine Corps, he knew he wanted to work and mentor young kids.

Dobson says he gets a lot of support from his fellow teachers and the community.

"It's like a family here. This award isn't really about me. It's about the community out here. It's just amazing how all of the teachers and the community pull together at Kanawha."
