Wilson County Motors and CedarStone Bank are proud to announce the 21st Annual Wilson County Teacher of the Year program. Since 1998, these two companies have partnered to celebrate teachers and teaching. The program began its development in 1996 when W.P. Bone and Bob McDonald came up with the idea as a way to recognize one of the community’s most important and treasured assets – its teachers. Bone and McDonald organized a focus group of individuals in the county representing leaders in business, government, civic and education, to assist in the process and criteria. After two years of planning and preparation, the program commenced and has been running for twenty-one consecutive years.
Since 2006, CedarStone Bank and McGavock High School have teamed up to recognize students who meet and exceed their school responsibilities, and who distinguish themselves as good citizens and students in our community.
Recently CedarStone Bank presented Student of the Month honors to Hannah Richardson (pictured in left photo) and James Phillips (pictured in right photo).
