Greencastle-Antrim High School teacher Karrie Hefner received the Pennsylvania VFW's Voice of Democracy Teacher of the Year Award in front of 650 veterans and guests at the organization's midwinter conference recently in Lancaster, Pa. Hefner lives in Chambersburg, Pa.

An American government and European history teacher instructing juniors and seniors, Hefner has supported the VFW's Voice of Democracy student patriotic essay contest for many years by volunteering to promote and support the scholarship program.

Sponsored by Post 2476 and District 21, she received a standing ovation for her efforts, which include working with the VFW post to submit student essays. She will be entered in the National VFW's VOD Teacher of the Year contest.
