United Way of Greater Knoxville and University of Tennessee Athletics have partnered to bring recognition and gratitude to our community’s educators. The Teacher of the Week initiative, now running, accepts nominations from the community and chooses one teacher per week as the winner. The Teacher of the Week will receive two tickets to a UT basketball game, an autographed collectible premium item from Tennessee men’s coach Rick Barnes, a prize pack from United Way, and recognition on the Rick Barnes TV show.
The week 1 winner is Linda Tilson from Northview Intermediate School in Sevier County.
The week 2 winner is Connie Boyd from West Valley Middle School in Knox County. She is pictured with student Natalie Newman, who nominated her.
Knox TN Today is proud to donate space to promote this initiative with a link on Our Town Kids page through the promotion. Find it here.
