Delazzer latest recipient of new award

Zariah Roberts – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Last month, LRHS Principal Craig Little awarded science teacher and boys cross country coach Bryan Thomas the first ever Mustang Faculty Award, and now it has a new recipient.

Little created this award as a way to recognize teachers and staff members for their hard work.

Wednesday Thomas passed the award on to English teacher Candy Delazzer, who has been a teacher for 43 years.

“This is almost the same amount of time since the Cubs won the world series,” Delazzer joked.

Coach Thomas said he chose to pass the award to Delazzer because of her professionalism and dedication to the class room.

“It’s a real honor,” said Delazzer.  “I want to thank Bryan and Lakewood Ranch for the opportunities I’ve had here after teaching for years at Southeast High School.”

Delazzer started her career at Southeast High.
