We know she will represent us well at the state level and beyond,” said Dr. Steve Flynt, Superintendent. “Tonight’s event is another shining example of what makes the Columbia County School District such a great place to learn and work.”

Each school’s Teacher of the Year, including the top five finalists, was recognized and awarded a variety of gifts. The winning Teacher of the Year will go on to represent Columbia County at the state level.
