Signora Lucchin to be Honored


Retired BWHS language teacher Signora Maria Lucchin is being honored by the Sons of Italy with its inaugural Teacher of the Year Award on February 11 at Villa Milano. Tickets to the dinner and show by Ray Massa's Eurorhythms are $50 per person or $35 for former students. The award was created to highlight exceptional teachers of Italian descent in central Ohio. Signora Lucchin taught foreign languages here for 45 years, starting the Italian program. She also taught French and Spanish and served as chair of the foreign language department from 1981-93. She led the study tour program to Italy, France, Greece, Spain and Switzerland from 1972-2013. Signora is occasionally back at Bishop Watterson as a substitute teacher.
