Top Honors for Thomas County Teacher

Thomas County Schools Superintendent Dr. Larry Green surprised third grade teacher Julie Scott and her class Friday morning with the announcement.

Scott is a language arts teacher at Cross Creek Elementary, and this is her first year working in Thomas County. She was nominated by her fellow teachers at Cross Creek.

The Thomas University graduate was among seven finalists for the award in the county.

As Thomas County's top teacher, Scott will now move on to the state’s teacher of the year competition.
