Riverview High School teacher Michael McNally received a Leaders in the Classroom Award this week from the Chevron corporation.

“He has sought out numerous innovative opportunities for our very small school and given the students unique experiences that have helped develop their interests and love of education,” Riverview parent Regina Lyons, who nominated McNally for the award, said in a release.

McNally is involved with the Riverview Enrichment Activities Program at the high school, working with students with interest in broadening their educational experience beyond the offerings of the regular curriculum, he said in a bio on the school district's website.

The Chevron award included a check for $1,000 for educational enrichment programming at Riverview, a Steelers jersey and ticket to their game against New England in December for McNally. He will also get to go to a special tailgate party before the game and will be recognized during a halftime ceremony.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
