Brown County teachers were honored at the annual Brown County In-Service held at Western Brown High School on Aug. 20. Over 600 teachers, administrators, and staff members were in attendance to acknowledge and applaud the nominees for the LEE Excellence in Education Award.

This year’s honored recipient of the LEE Award is Sonner, a technology teacher for RULH School District.

The LEE Excellence in Education Award, initiated by Dr. J.W. Lee, of Georgetown, in conjunction with the Brown County Educational Service Center, recognizes the most outstanding teachers in the Brown County Schools. Throughout the last school year, nominations were made by colleagues, students, and community members of each school district.

Based on the following criteria, a candidate was chosen by each district to be a representative: worked as a full time classroom teacher, set high expectations for students and self, inspired students, colleagues, and the community, maintained a high level of professionalism and professional growth, demonstrated concern and respect for students, and employed in a Brown County school for the 2014-2015 school year.
