Teacher of the Year banquet Friday
Tuesday, April 9, 2013

Organizers of the annual Wilson County Teacher of the Year program have announced the nominees for the 2013 Wilson County Teacher of the Year. The winner will be honored at the 15th Annual Teacher of the Year banquet and ceremony Friday, April 12, in Baird Chapel on the campus of Cumberland University. 

The Teacher of the Year program began almost 16 years ago under the direction of W.P. Bone, III, owner of Wilson County Chevrolet-Buick-GMC, and Bob McDonald, President, CedarStone Bank. 

“Education is the most important factor in the success of a community,” said W.P. Bone III. “It is fitting that we recognize and congratulate those professionals to whom we entrust the futures of our children.”

Each of the 28 schools in Wilson County nominates and elects its own “teacher of the year” from its faculty; nominees are chosen by their peers. Those twenty-eight teachers then complete self-evaluation packets, providing the information for the final judging. Past winners of the award meet with those nominees and go over the criteria processing materials, which have proven to be a great learning experience for all those involved. An anonymous panel of Cumberland University faculty members then selects the Wilson County Teacher of the Year.

Many people play an important role in making the program successful, including members of local businesses and government, school principals, school administrators and the Chambers of Commerce from Lebanon, Mt. Juliet and Watertown. Community leaders throughout the area are on hand during the awards banquet to show their support and gratitude.

“We are very proud of this program as it recognizes educators in our community that go above and beyond their call of duty,” commented Bob McDonald, President & CEO of CedarStone Bank, “and we at CedarStone Bank are proud to be a part of it. It is wonderful to see our teachers be acknowledged and rewarded for the fine job they do.”

The winner will receive a $1,500 cash prize and their school will net another $500 for their efforts.

Those selected from across the county as “Teacher of the Year” in their respected school are as follows: Holly Yelton, Byars-Dowdy Elementary School; Kerry Veurink, Carroll-Oakland Elementary School; Kellie Porter, Castle Heights Elementary School; Stephanie Heath, Coles Ferry Elementary School; Carol Smallwood, Elzie D.
