Teacher of the Year

2024 Teacher of the Year Selection

The Annual Teacher of the Year Banquet celebrated and honored five outstanding educators. Community leaders, peers, family, and friends were all in attendance to recognize their sacrifices and significant contributions. It was a night to remember filled with good food, good music, good times, and a good message.

A heartfelt “thank you” is extended to the New Horizons Educational Foundation for sponsoring the annual event for the deserving educators serving at New Horizons. Please join us in celebrating the 2024 NHREC Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Shannon Wheaton, from the Newport Academy and all of the 2024 Program Teachers of the Year!
