Vote for Teacher of the Year

Chamber seeking nominations

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — That special teacher who makes a difference now has an opportunity to be recognized by students and parents.

The annual “Teacher of the Year” nomination forms will be distributed to local schools this week for students to acknowledge the educators who inspire and motivate their learning process.

The recognition is part of the yearly London-Laurel Chamber of Commerce’s  celebration which is set for March 4 this year. A teacher from elementary, middle and high school levels will receive a plaque and $1,000 for the top votes.

“We are excited to again offer teachers the chance to be recognized,” said Deanna Herrmann, executive director of the Chamber of Commerce. “Once again, it will be sponsored by Cumberland Healthcare, with each teacher receiving $1,000 to use as they wish.”

The nomination form requests the teacher’s name, what grades are taught, which school, and the name of the person nominating the teacher. Those making the nominations must write a brief description detailing why that teacher is selected for the honor.

“We often don’t see what goes on in the schools on a daily basis. But when the students articulate how a teacher has affected their lives, it shows what an impact a teacher has on the children.”

Nomination forms will also be available at the Chamber office on Main Street as well as at The Sentinel-Echo. All nomination forms must be received by February 4.

“We encourage everyone to vote and encourage your children to vote for the teacher that has made a positive impact on them,” Herrmann added. “It shows what an impact a teacher has on children and what a vital role teachers play in raising our children.”
