Local teachers honored

Three area teachers are among 34 educators who have been honored by Weatherford College during the 2013 Jack Harvey Academy of Exemplary Teachers celebration. In its 17th year, the honor is in memory of Professor Emeritus Jack Harvey, who taught at Weatherford College for 23 years and was highly respected among his peers. The local teachers who were recognized are Kristen Thigpen, a first-grade teacher at Oak Woods; Shawna Green, a third-grade math and science teacher in Tolar; and Tawn Perkins, a high school math teacher in Lipan.
