Congratulations to the new Teacher of the Year: ProStart instructor, Chef Stephen Brown Jr.

Runners-up this year were Venita Christman, Social Studies, and Jessica Firl, Surgical Technology. The three finalists had each been nominated by students and chosen to be Teacher of the Term during the 2016-2017 school year. Director/Principal Donna Van Metre presented each of them with plaques as she announced the next Teacher of the Year. JRTI faculty, members of the Administrative Council, and other guests were in attendance. Chef Brown, Chef Lonnie Coble, and students from the Culinary Arts program catered a fantastic breakfast Friday morning for the announcement. Thank you to everyone involved. Congratulations to all three finalists!
