Congratulations to Ashley Welchel, who teaches music at Hoover, on being selected by her peers as the Hoover Teacher of the Year. Trey Howell, who teaches physical education at Hoover, was selected as the Rising Star Teacher, a recognition for outstanding teachers with less than five years of experience.

The honorees will be celebrated at a public program on Thursday, April 6 on Rigdon Field at Doenges Memorial Stadium in a fun baseball-themed event starting at 5:30 p.m. when the District Teacher of the Year and District Rising Star Teacher will be announced.

The program will also include recognition of the Kurt Schmoldt Teacher Appreciation Award recipient; nominations for that award are open to the public and due February 22.
