Academics will be in the spotlight of the first home football game of 2013.
The district's Davis Teachers of the Year will be honored during halftime of the Hutchinson High School vs. Salina Central football game at Gowans Stadium. The game kicks off at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, with halftime at about 7:30 p.m.
The elementary winners for 2013 were Alice Schmidt Boyd, special education teacher at Avenue A, and Jesse Ediger, third grade teacher at Graber. The middle school winner was Josh Dellenbach, math teacher at Hutchinson Middle School -- 7. The high school winners were Laura Bottom, medical sciences teacher at the Career and Technical Education Academy, and Larry Ballard, science teacher at HHS.
Each winner received $4,000. The Davis Foundation has contributed millions of dollars to Hutchinson Public Schools' staff and students since its first scholarships were awarded to HHS seniors 56 years ago. This is the 32nd time the awards have been made to teachers.
