State senators Joel Lourie and Vincent Sheheen, along with State Rep. Laurie Slade Funderburk, recently honored the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) by sponsoring KCSD Teacher of the Year Helen Walker’s appearance at the South Carolina Teacher of the Year celebration in Columbia to be held Tuesday. Walker teaches music at Doby’s Mill Elementary School in Lugoff and will be honored at the event organized by South Carolina Future Minds, a non-profit that organizes private support for the state’s public schools. Walker will have an especially exciting night, as she is one of five finalists vying to become the 2012-13 S.C. Teacher of the Year.
