Area Leaders Honor
Local Teacher of the Year
Saluda County’s state legislative delegation has honored Saluda County Schools and its teachers by sponsoring District Teacher of the Year Paul Johnson’s appearance at the South Carolina Teacher of the Year Celebration in Columbia Wednesday, May 1.
While Johnson did not win the 2014 State Teacher of the Year award, he was one of five finalists vying for the honor. He teaches 9th through 12th grade Biology at Saluda High School, and will be honored at the event organized by South Carolina Future Minds, the non-profit that organizes private support for the state’s public schools.
He is sponsored by Sens. Nikki Setzler, Floyd Nicholson, and Shane Massey, and Reps. Ralph Kennedy and Bill Clyburn.
"The support of these leaders underscores the importance of great teachers to all of us," said Trip DuBard, SC Future Minds executive director. "We’re all proud of and grateful for teachers like Mr. Johnson."
The SC Teacher of the Year Celebration was held May 1 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. The event brought together leaders of government, business and education to honor the best teachers from all South Carolina school districts.
The evening began with a public parade of teachers at 5:30 p.m. into the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.
