New Madrid County Post 7183 Teacher of the Year
The Smart/Maher VFW National Citizenship Education Teacher Award was started as a way to identify and recognize America’s best educators who instill a sense of national pride in their students. Nominees from the New Madrid County area were submitted to New Madrid County Post 7183 in Lilbourn and Matthews Elementary fourth grade teacher, Sarah Lawson, was chosen out of those nominated in the county as the winner of the Elementary level (K-5) Lilbourn post awards. Mrs. Lawson will now be eligible at the District level awards. Congratulations Mrs. Lawson!
