Three Troup County School System teachers were surprised this morning with the announcement that they are finalists in the system’s Teacher of the Year competition.
Superintendent Cole Pugh, accompanied by the TCSS prize patrol, visited the finalists at their schools bearing flowers, balloons and the good news.
The three finalists are:
• Jorine Silcox, fifth grade reading, language arts and writing teacher at Franklin Forest Elementary School, is the Elementary School Teacher of the Year.
• Jason Graham, seventh grade social studies teacher at Long Cane Middle School, is the Middle School Teacher of the Year.
• Carol Cain, high school drama teacher at Troup High School, is the High School Teacher of the Year.
The Troup County School System Teacher of the Year will be chosen from the three finalists on March 20 at a reception that also honors all system Teacher of the Year nominees.
