A sixth grade teacher at Hunter Lake Elementary just retired after 21 years in the classroom, but before the school year ended, News Four sent him off with a special surprise.
This month we selected Elgin Thompson to be our Excellence in Education Award Winner.
Thompson has spent his teaching career in the 4th and 6th grades loving the opportunity to encourage and support students along the way.H
His students say he always has a positive attitude and gives everyone that special attention they need.
Thompson says once he started in the classroom 21 years ago he was hooked by the students curiosity and willingness to learn.
Congratulations to Elgin Thompson News Four's Excellence in Education Award Winner!
