Teachers of the Year from Seneca’s five public schools were treated to lunch and given plaques by the Rotary Club. Rotarian Wayne Gallimore said he’s impressed that the choices made as to who deserves teacher of the year are selections made by the teacher’s peers. This year’s honor goes to Tara Bowen of Seneca High School, Robin Cox of Ravenel Elementary, Connie Compton of Blue Ridge Elementary, Carol Howle of Seneca Middle School, and Wendy Groomes of Northside Elementary. Smiles came to the faces in the Rotary audience on learning some of the background as to why these five women chose education for their careers. One winner, Bowen of Seneca High, knew as far back as the second grade that she wanted to be a teacher, and she’s never wavered from that.
