Turpin Educator Named Hixson Teacher of the Year

Melissa Sand, an Art Teacher at Turpin High School in the Forest Hills School District, has been selected as the Hixson Architecture, Engineering, Interiors “Teacher of the Year” for the 2018-2019 school year. The award was presented to Sand at a ceremony honoring her and the other finalists for the award at Hixson’s offices in Mt. Adams.

The program, which originated in 1991 as a way for Hixson to honor the outstanding work teachers do to educate the next generation, encourages Hixson associates to nominate a teacher of one of their children or grandchildren.  Sand was nominated by Scott McGlamery, whose daughter was in Sand’s classroom during the 2018-2019 school year.
