Julia Rogers Receives Foundation Apple Award

Julia Rogers, the Coordinator of Assessment and Instructional Services for Batavia City School District, was recently presented with a BCSD Foundation Apple award. Miss Rogers was nominated for the award by the BCSD Foundation’s Board of Directors who wrote, “Miss Rogers spent countless hours to ensure the successful establishment and development of this Foundation. She has served as a leader in all areas of the Foundation since its inception, and the members of the Foundation could not be more grateful. As an administrator here in this district, Miss Rogers has always gone above and beyond the call of duty. It is well known that Miss Rogers gets things done effectively and always with a love for our District at the forefront of her mind. Behind many of the functions that take place, is guidance and assistance from Miss Rogers. Behind her actions are always the best intentions for BCSD. She exemplifies what it means to Take Care of BCSD.”


The BCSD Foundation Apple award is given by a member of the school and/or local community to a Batavia City School District employee or volunteer. In the opinion of those giving the honor of this distinction, the awardee has gone above and beyond in their role and is being recognized by one or more people for these accomplishments.

Local artist, Mark Jensen, makes each individual resin apple so, like the recipients, none are exactly the same.
