Jean Shaw, a longtime teacher of the arts and drama with the South Whidbey School District, was the recipient of the Mayor’s Excellence Award pin during the Langley City Council’s Jan. 17 meeting.

City Councilwoman Rene Neff recommended Shaw for the recognition in a letter to Mayor Tim Callison.

Neff wrote that Shaw, a Langley resident, had a large impact on the youth of South Whidbey for her work in organizing talent shows in the Langley Middle School auditorium while also teaming up with Michael McInerney to produce musicals at South Whidbey High School.

“Jean Shaw’s love of children and her commitment to the arts is commendable and inspirational,” Neff wrote.

“Langley is lucky to have such an amazing woman in the community who literally has inspired generations of locals to love theater and support our community’s thriving theater economy,” Neff wrote.
