President's Choice

Congratulations Dr. Alex Apostle!

Selected by Jennifer Owens, Peninsula Credit Union, 2016 Chamber Board President






"The recipient of this award has made an incredible and undeniable impact. The honoree has approached both challenges and opportunities with passion, sincerity, and positivity. So quickly did he weave himself into the fabric of our community that it was with great surprise that I realized he had only joined us some eighteen months ago. This person has poured his heart and soul into developing meaningful partnerships with local businesses, stakeholders, and leaders—and to huge effect.

He has proclaimed “Shelton Proud, Shelton Now” and each day rises early, working tirelessly on efforts like Graduation Matters Shelton, increasing school pride with innovative events involving the community at large, and developing creative solutions such as the health and science academy. He does all of this while encouraging staff, teachers, and students…  meanwhile educating the community about the importance of the upcoming Bond & Levy.

Dr. Alex Apostle, the superintendent of Shelton Schools, has proven himself to be a visionary, a collaborator, and someone who is committed to a bright future for this community."
