PCEF Excellent Educator Awards Sponsored by the Louis Family


The Sarah & Stephen Doilney Award

Excellent Educator LOGO ONLY

In 1996, developers Jim Doilney and Mike Barnes wanted to give back to the schools that gave Park City such a stellar reputation and made it a desirable place to live. In particular, Jim, the son of a teacher, wanted to honor his mother's profession. Thus, with PCEF's help, the Doliney-Barnes Teaching Excellence Awards were born.

Each spring, teachers and staff at each of the Park City School District’s seven schools vote for the person they feel best personifies an excellent educator. PCSD’s Board of Education, PTO/PTA officers and PCEF’s Board of Directors may also vote. Since 1996, Jim has funded a cash award for the winner at each school.

In 2019 the Louis Family became sponsors of the Excellent Educator Award. Both families came to Park City in the 70's, are long-time friends and both love the teaching profession. Hank Louis is an architect and taught architecture at the University of Utah and McPolin Elementary! He also was a founder of the Winter School.

In 1996, Jim also created a very special award to honor his parents. The Sarah & Stephen Doliney Award, as voted on by the Senior Class at Park City High, honors the most influential educator of their school career. This award will continue to be funded by Jim.
