Wal-Mart to honor Teacher of the Year
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is accepting nominations for its Teacher of the Year program, now in its 12th year.
The Local Teacher of the Year honor is awarded by each Wal-Mart and Sam's Club location during National Teacher Appreciation Week in May.
Winners receive a $1,000 grant for their schools and are eligible to apply for the state's Teacher of the Year award, which pays $10,000 to the winning teacher's school.
