Jackson School System Stars Were Shining

In a special program sponsored by the Jackson County Teachers Credit Union, the Jackson County School Board, and Schools Superintendent Lee Miller, a large crowd assembled in the Marianna High auditorium on Monday evening for the purpose of honoring our teachers and school system employees. It was a special moment in the school year.
After a reception period in the school cafeteria, the crowd assembled in the auditorium for the special event which would culminate with the announcement of this years winner of the much coveted designation of “Jackson County Teacher of the Year”. This award began in 1970, and has grown in importance through the decades.
The program began with the Marianna Civil Air Patrol serving as an honor guard which presented the American flag to the audience. Then the pledge of allegiance was citied and national anthem was sung by the Riverside Beaver Chorus. This was followed by opening remarks from Superintendent Lee Miller, Linda Neel with the Jackson County Teachers Credit Union, and Charlotte Gardner, current Chairperson of the Jackson County School Board. Then the Riverside Beaver Chorus entertained with several songs.
