About the Award
The Teacher of the Year Award began in 1997, under the leadership of one of our chamber members, Alberta Muirhead. Discussion surrounded how essential it was to attract, retain and encourage excellent teachers and Ms. Muirhead suggested that the chamber recognize outstanding teachers in our community. Ms. Muirhead’s vision and support, as well as the strong positive response from the education committee and the board of directors, led to the establishment of the Teacher of the Year Award. Nomination forms are available each March and the award ceremony is held each May.
