– Suwannee County School District Teacher of the Year 2016-2017, Melva Batts

Suwannee Education Foundation coordinates and funds the Suwannee County Teacher of the Year (TOY) Program and hosts the TOY banquet each year in January. This event draws nearly 300 teachers, school employees, business leaders, and community members annually to Advent Christian Village Phillips Dining Hall in support of Suwannee County’s honored educators and school related employees.

The TOY banquet involves fun themes, a delicious meal, adorable student videos, and heartwarming introductions of each finalist made by past students. It is an event you don’t want to miss!

Contact Katherine Haney to purchase tickets ($25.00) to the next banquet or to sponsor the TOY Program. Tickets and sponsorships can be purchased between October and January.
