Ava Williamson ‘18: Last Thursday, December 7, Romeo High School teacher, Erwin Slava, became the recipient of the EMMA Award from the Romeo Chamber of Commerce. Given out yearly, the EMMA – Extraordinary Member Merit & Achievement – is granted to the teacher who they feel shows the most excellence in teaching and mentoring throughout the year. Honored to be 2017’s recipient, Slava credits his students for playing a crucial role in his success.
“I really am honored, but the people who I should really thank are the students, who make my job both enjoyable, and exciting,” Slava said.
In addition to the EMMA, Slava also received a tribute from Michigan State Representative, Peter Lucido, for his excellence in teaching.
Congratulations Mr. Slava!
