Rookie Teacher of the Year for the district went to Samantha Matthews.  Matthews is a 5th grade teacher who earned her Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education at Chipola College.  

School Related Employee of the Year district award went to Renea Hilton.  Hilton works at the district office as the Programmer Manager for the school district with 34 years’ experience. She has 31 years at her current site.  She is married to David Hilton.

The Jackson County Times extends congratulations to the winners and all the nominees.
