The apple has become an icon of not only teachers but their profession as well. A gift of an apple for a teacher has a long history and has come to symbolize, at the cultural level, appreciation for all they do.
Kiwanis Clubs throughout the country recognize this, and their “Apples For Teachers” campaigns demonstrate that appreciation in a public way.
Locally, the Kiwanis Club of Madison polished, labeled, packed and delivered several boxes of apples to each public school in the district, enough so that every faculty member and staff person at that school could have their very own apple of appreciation.
