With the new school year in full swing in Macon County, its Board of Education got down to business by awarding educators, supporting programs and beginning its search for a new superintendent.
The board recognized Tolly Bowles, of South Macon Elementary, as Principal of the Year. “I am honored and humbled,” said Bowles.
Rita Esterwood, of Franklin High School, was recognized as Teacher of the year. Esterwood was not present for the meeting, so the board said that they would present her with the award at a later time.
Carolyn Anderson, who has worked at East Franklin Elementary since 1994, was also awarded Support person of the Year.
