The Excellence in Education program recognizes teachers from Haywood County Schools who exemplify a commitment to innovative teaching practices and show dedication to student success. The program is sponsored by Jack Bishop of Edward Jones and the Haywood County Schools Foundation (HCSF).
“It’s not uncommon for teachers to spend money out of their own pockets to purchase classroom supplies,” Bishop said. “Our teachers are shaping our children’s future, and it’s an honor to support them as a community partner.”
Each month, up to three teachers from the 16 Haywood County Schools are recognized with an Excellence in Education award. Award winners are presented with a certificate and a $100 check sponsored by Bishop.
