The Dougherty County School System is starting a new program to honor hardworking teachers.

Each month school leaders will pick an elementary, middle and high school "GAME BALL" winner.  The teachers will be surprised in the classroom with a basketball.   

The new teacher recognition initiative highlights educators who have demonstrated their commitment to making sure every child performs at or above grade level.

"There are so many things a teacher has to deal with.  And Dr. Mosely wanted to let all our teachers know that he appreciated those that were still able to excel with those requirements,"said R.D. Harter, the DCSS spokesperson.

Interim Superintendent David Mosely, who is a former teacher and basketball coach, came up with the idea. 

The first group of awards will be presented in the classrooms of the winning teachers next Thursday.
