INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana State Teachers Association honored two longtime Elkhart teachers at the group’s annual representative assembly Saturday, April 27, in Indianapolis.

The ISTA honored Elkhart’s Jill Szyarto with the Community Service Award and bestowed the Lifetime Achievement Award to her late husband, Steve Szyarto, according to the ISTA.

Jill Szyarto is a fourth-grade PEP (Providing for Exceptional Potential) teacher at Pinewood Elementary School. She will complete her 37th year with Elkhart Community Schools at the end of this school year, according to Jodee Shaw, the school system’s communications coordinator.

Steve Szyarto, who died in November 2012, had worked for the Elkhart school system for more than 40 years. He had been a teacher at Lincoln and Hawthorne elementaries, according to his obituary.

The government has failed to inspect virtually all of the chemical facilities that it considers to be at high risk for a terror attack, numbering in the thousands, and has underestimated the threat to densely populated cities, congressional investigators say.
