Quitman - Many teachers feel overworked and under appreciated as they strive to educate our children. However, one company is honoring these dedicated professionals.

Jennifer Hiers, a kindergarten teacher at Quitman Elementary School, was surprised today when she was named Sam's Club Teacher of the Year.

Each year, Sam's Club chooses a Teacher of the Year from each community. The nominees come from the shoppers and are chosen by the management staff at Sam's Club.

Hiers was chosen from more than 55 nominees. "I was totally surprised, couldn't believe it but I am very excited and very happy to be chosen," said Jennifer Hiers of Quitman Elementary School.

Heirs received a Sam's vest honoring her as teacher of the year, and Quitman Elementary received a check for one thousand dollars.
