Applebee’s presents $500 check to local teacher

In April, Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar restaurants owned and operated by Doherty Enterprises announced the winners of their third annual Above and ‘BEE’yond Teacher Essay Contest. The contest recognized top teachers from school districts throughout Florida — as nominated by their students via an essay written and submitted to their local Applebee’s restaurant. Winning teachers received a $500 sponsorship check to use towards school supplies for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year.
