Why the Golden Apple?
In days gone by, rural school teachers received little more than free room and board as pay. Families of students helped out by sending provisions. Apples were a sensible choice because they were plentiful, cheap and easy to carry. Phrases such as “an apple for the teacher” and being called an “apple polisher” are still sometimes heard in our speech today. The apple also has an association with the biblical tree of knowledge. Another familiar saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” associates this common fruit with health and wellness.
For these reasons, the golden apple makes an excellent, lasting symbol with which to honor excellence in the education or health fields. Available in a brushed brass finish and a variety of sizes and presentations, the golden apple makes an impressive way to mark achievement or retirement for that special educator or care giver. The golden apple becomes unique and memorable when personalized.
