WINCHESTER -- City school officials on Wednesday announced Janet Fabin as winner of the 2009 Stewart Bell Endowment for Excellence in Teaching Award.

The following people were honored as Quiet Heroes: Daniel Morgan Middle treasurer Beth Sitton, John Handley High teaching assistant Cookie Sullivan, Frederick Douglass Elementary guidance counselor Susan Catlett, John Kerr Elementary clerk Chiffon Armistead, Virginia Avenue school psychologist Debbie Brad, bus driver/aide Bonnie Elliott, Quarles Elementary teaching assistant Judy Cunningham, Douglas Community Learning Center custodian Barbara Holliday, lead elementary custodian Randy Dean, and system-wide custodian Thomas Carlisle.
