Teacher of the Year

It is believed that the Rotary Club of Greenville decided to recognize the Greenville County Schools Teacher of the Year and three runners-up prior to the State Department of Education starting a program to recognize the South Carolina Teacher of the Year.  For over thirty years, Rotary provided a judge whose responsibility was to read and score all the teacher essays to determine the top ten teachers.  The judges selected the Teacher of the Year and the three runners-up by observing them teaching and conducting personal interviews.


Annually, our club hosts the winners and recognizes them by giving them a cash award.  The program takes place each fall and continues to be one of the club’s most popular luncheons.
