The Marlboro County School District has announced the district winner for this year’s Teacher of the Year award. The Teachers of the Year for each school and the district are usually recognized at the convocation, which was canceled this year because of safety concerns.  
The district's Teacher of the Year represents the Marlboro County School District in vying to be State Teacher of the Year.  
Becoming District Teacher of the Year is a three-step process that begins in May, when school-level Teachers of the Year are selected by their peers.  Those wishing to compete for District Teacher of the Year submit detailed applications by the end of July.   These applications are then reviewed by a selection committee which determines the winner.
