Golden Apple: Kim Hardman
This week's Golden Apple Award goes to Kim Hardman, a science teacher at Ricci Middle School in North Providence.
Hardman, who is a big fan of NBC 10 News meteorologist Mark Searles, was nominated by fellow teacher, Marilyn McLaughlin.
McLaughlin said Hardman “is the heart of the science department. She's invested in all of her students and is available to them seven days a week.”
When NBC 10 anchor Patrice Wood visited Hardman, she not only presented the teacher with the award, she only gave her an autographed photo of Searles.
“Thank you,” Hardman exclaimed. “That's a framer!"
