Albany--  After only three years on the job, an Albany Tech teacher is proud to receive a prestigious honor.

Environmental Horticulture Instructor George Paul beat out four other finalists and was named Albany Tech's 2007 Teacher of the Year at a banquet Wednesday. The award is given based on attitude, appeal and how well examples are set.

Paul was very surprised to receive the honor which includes $500 from the Albany Technical College Foundation.  Hall says he won't keep the money.

"I plan to put it in the foundation to be used as a scholarship for horticulture students in the future because I think that would be the best way to invest that money," said Paul.

Paul spent 25 years in the horticulture field before becoming a teacher at Albany Tech. He'll now compete on the regional and state level for The Rick Perkins Award for Excellence in Technical Instruction. That winner will serve as an ambassador for technical education in the state.
