Teacher of the Year

A Carteret County school teacher is leaving the school year in style. A West Carteret High School educator was named the county’s Teacher of the Year and awarded a new set of keys. 

Lindsey Howell was handed a set of keys to a new white Chevrolet Friday afternoon. 

She was one of many honorees from the county to be recognized at the employee of the year luncheon.

Colleagues describe her as a leader, a strong student advocate, and a team player. 

Howell said she doesn’t know what set her apart from others, but believes it was due to those before her. 

“I know that I do a good job, but I know there are so many other teachers in this community that do a phenomenal job because I teach the students that they taught,” said Howell. 

Winners are nominated by their colleagues and selected by a panel of people.

Howell will have use of the car for one year at no cost.  

Below is a list of the winners: 

Jody McClenny -Sound Bank Principal of the Year

Amanda Waltrip -Tim Hudson Painting Classified Employee of the Year
