The Rotary Club of Chattanooga Hamilton Place honored “Distinguished Teachers” for five local schools at Embassy Suites off Shallowford Road.
The seniors were ask to vote for the influential educator whose actions exemplify Rotary’s motto, “Service Above Self,” and demonstrate the following principles of the Rotary Club’s “4-Way Test” for the things we think, say, or do: (1) Is it the truth? (2) Is it fair to all concerned? (3) Will it build good will and better friendships? (4)Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
“We were delighted to honor dedicated teachers for the 2013-2014 school year. They were chauffeured with their principal by limousine, presented a plaque as well as a gift card of our appreciation,” said Rotarian Brigette Thurman.
