Heard County School System Teacher and Support Person of the Year

The Heard County School System held its annual Teacher of the Year/Support Person of the Year Recognition Reception on May 7th at Heard Elementary. This year’s theme was “Welcome to the Safari”.

Mrs. Susan Hyatt did an outstanding job in transforming the Heard Elementary Cafeteria into the wilds of Africa, complete with “wild animals”, trees, African artifacts, and even a bamboo hut. The food was delicious with a variety of offerings. Thanks go to Ms. Gail Bishop and her crew for all of their hard work with the food preparations.
