Rotary Club of Gangtok Confers Nation Builder Awards 2017 to Teachers


Engineers build bridges, Doctors save lives, Police ensures law & order, but it is the teacher who builds all of them and in that sense they are the true Nation Builders. Acknowledging the efforts of the teachers, who are the True Nation Builders, is crucial. Rotary India Literacy Mission’s Nation Builder Award recognizes one outstanding teacher from a school through an evaluation process which involves the participation of the Principal/ Head Teacher and 10 students for each school. This year Rotary Club of Gangtok chose 25 schools of East Sikkim and evaluated teachers of these 25 schools. 
The 25 outstanding teachers of these schools were awarded with Nation Builder Award by Rotary Club of Gangtok. After a brief citation presentation program of the club with Joint Director East, Human Resources Development Department (HRDD), Govt. Of Sikkim, Mrs Tshering Keyee as chief guest at Hotel Tara Palace, they all received recognition in front of Honourable Governor of Sikkim, Shri Sriniwas Patil, Minister of HRDD, Shri R. B. Subba and host of other dignitaries in the State’s Teacher’s Day Function organized by Human Resource Development Department at Chintan Bhawan on 5th September 2017. 
Members of Rotary Club of Gangtok were also present at the occasion and felt that by honouring these outstanding teachers, they were also paying tribute to their own teachers and encouraging the teacher fraternity to do even better
