The celebration included a visit from Tennessee Education Commissioner Penny Schwinn, and Lunsford received a $3,000 check from the Tennessee Organization of School Superintendents. Earlier this year, Lunsford was named one of three KCS Teachers Of The Year, and her work was highlighted in a video profile.
