“Citadel is proud to recognize educators. Across Greater Philadelphia, our counties, towns, and districts have varied challenges and students with diverse needs. What all areas have in common is there are dedicated teachers building strength in education,” said Mike Schnably, Senior Vice President, Citadel Credit Union. “Celebrating teachers, the unsung heroes who mold our children, continues to be one of Citadel’s proudest moments as an organization each year.”

The Citadel Heart of Learning Award is one of Citadel’s longest-standing initiatives. The program started 21 years ago, in partnership with the Chester County Intermediate Unit, to recognize local teachers who show dedication in and outside the classroom.
