McLemore Named Meridian's Teacher of the Year

Meridian, Miss. The Meridian Public School District surprised its Teacher of the Year with her award Tuesday.

Penny McLemore is the director of choral activities at Meridian High School.

McLemore was nominated as by her principal, Victor Hubbard. Superintendent Dr. Alvin Taylor delivered the news in front of her music students.

"My students are excited and I know that normally that teachers that are teaching core classes that are trying to get the test scores up and all that and sometimes people don't understand that the electives, the music and the art," said McLemore. "We help get test scores up, too, and we give the kids an experience that they could not get anywhere else."

Hubbard was also honored as Meridian's Administrator of the Year for 2013-2014.
