CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - South Jefferson Elementary School teacher Carol Whittington was named Jefferson County Teacher of the Year for 2002 at Tuesday night's Jefferson County Board of Education meeting.

Whittington, who teaches kindergarten at the school, has taught at South Jefferson for 16 years. Before that, she taught for one year at Blue Ridge Elementary School after graduating from Shepherd College.

Whittington is the third teacher of the year to be selected from South Jefferson, which was named last week as a Blue Ribbon School, the highest award a school can receive.

Whittington was selected from a field of 10 finalists. Whoops and cheers erupted among teachers and school officials when Whittington was named top teacher from the group.
