More than 100 entries flooded into Carroll Broadcasting for the Teacher of the Year Award, and several local educators assisted in selecting the winner, middle school science instructor, Science Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) teacher and First Tech Challenge (FTC) coach at IKM-Manning Schools, Jim Blankman.
Blankman received the award at the IKM-Manning School during a special assembly Friday morning.
The passion Blankman has for the profession and his commitment to the kids makes him one of the most respected instructors among his peers, as well as the parents and students in his classroom.
For Middle School Principal, Sharon Whitson, this is an honor for the entire district, but she was not surprised that Blankman rose to the top of that list of nominees.
The IKM-Manning High School Student Council was able to donate over $2900 to the American Cancer Society, raising funds by sponsoring 2 Pink Outs (Volleyball and Basketball), t-shirt sales, a silent auction and donations.
