Many people play an important role in making the program successful, including members of business and government, school principals, school administrators and the Chambers of Commerce from Lebanon, Mt. Juliet and Watertown. Community leaders throughout the area are on hand during the awards banquet to show their support and gratitude.
“We are very proud of this program as it recognizes educators in our community that go above and beyond their call of duty,” commented Bob McDonald, “and we at CedarStone Bank are proud to be a part of it. It is wonderful to see our teachers be acknowledged and rewarded for the fine job they do.”
The event is held annually in Baird Chapel on the campus of Cumberland University. Dr. Harvill Eaton, president of Cumberland, presented the award to Vann.
