Evelyn Orner said Josie Pelc "has always done wonders."

So Orner was not surprised when Pelc was given this year's Callie Award for education.

Orner, who is 96 years old, was Pelc's first-grade teacher.

Pelc and five other women were honored Monday night at the United Way of Adams County 2004 Callie Awards: A Celebration of Exceptional Women.

The award banquet was held at the Carroll Valley Resort in Carroll Valley.

Each of the women was presented with a Callie vase, provided by Adams County National Bank.

After a cocktail hour and dinner, friends of each woman spoke about the recipients' devotion to their community, families and work.

To receive a Callie Award, each woman must meet five criteria. They must be residents of Adams County for at least five years; demonstrate excellence, creativity and initiative in their fields; demonstrate a significant level of commitment and leadership to professional or community service; work or volunteer for an organization that serves Adams County; and improve the quality of life for others. They can only have received "limited public recognition for their work."

"They're the people who do all of the work for no recognition whatsoever," said Kathy Nelson-Small, president of the United Way of Adams County.


Josie Pelc for education. Pelc, a physical education teacher in the Gettysburg School District, has spent the past 25 years teaching children how to enjoy sports ­ regardless of physical differences.

Pelc, who lives in Biglerville, also teaches reading to the students and uses physical education to enhance academics.

She is also very active in the Biglerville community.

"I love being involved," she said. "I like to put them (her students) in the lead and let them shine." ......................................................
