SOUTHPORT, NC (WECT) - The Southport-Oak Island Area Chamber of Commerce Education Committee appreciates the job teachers are doing to educate and prepare the future workforce.
As a way to recognize the dedicated teachers in our schools, the Chamber will be asking students in each of the eight schools in its service area to nominate a teacher whom they have learned the most from and who they feel deserves recognition.
The committee will then award the teacher who receives the most nominations a beach chair as a small token of appreciation.
The first school surveyed was Southport Elementary. Congratulations to Wendy Jones, who garnered the most nominations and received the Southport-Oak Island Area Chamber of Commerce Teacher Appreciation Award for Southport Elementary.
