“This recognition is well-deserved and minimal compared to their commitment to the children of our community.”
STATESBORO – Georgia Southern University and your Local Ford Dealers are partnering to celebrate teachers this football season with “Ford Teacher of the Week.”
For each game week, a teacher will be recognized on Georgia Southern Athletics social platforms as the Ford Teacher of the Week. Each teacher and his/her class will receive a prize package courtesy of your Local Ford Dealers. 2020-2021 Teachers of the Year in schools within Georgia Southern College of Education’s service area who are alumni of the University (or Armstrong State University) will automatically be entered to win one of the 11 game recognitions.
Winning teachers will be drawn at random each week and notified prior to game week.
“It is important to recognize the dedication and hard work that teachers give every day in the classroom to educating our youth,” said Tim Redding of Metter Ford, who represents the Southeast Ford Dealers Advertising Fund. “We want our teachers to feel appreciated.”
