Sherry Holder has been given the National History Day "Patricia Behring National Teacher of the Year" award for the junior division. Holder, who teachers at Conway Junior High, was nominated by two of her students.
The national award comes after Holder was the regional winner for the National History Day Teacher of the Year, an honor she greatly deserves, according to her students and colleagues.
"No one, and I mean no one, dedicates more time and energy in helping these kids," says fellow Social Studies teacher Kevin DeStefano.
Holder will receive $10,000 along with her title.
