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.

 A 15-year-old boy, seen sitting on a stretcher center, who stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from San Jose, Calif., to Maui is loaded into an ambulance at Kahului Airport in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii Sunday afternoon, April 20, 2014. The boy survived the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the boy was questioned by the FBI after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport with no identification.
