Roney named Crisp teacher of the year

Crisp County Elementary School’s Beth Roney was named the school district’s teacher of the year for the 2018-19 school year at an awards ceremony Thursday morning. Roney was the district’s top choice among candidates from the primary, elementary, middle, and high schools.

Faculty and staff who are retiring this year were also honored at Thursday’s ceremony. One of the more notable retirees who was honored is Crisp County School Superintendent David Mims, a 31-year veteran educator who served in the Crisp County School System for 15 years as a teacher, assistant principal, principal, assistant superintendent, and then superintendent. He has served as school superintendent for the last five years.

More photos from Thursday’s event will be posted later today along with names and biographical information about each school’s teacher of the year and retirees, and you can read all about it in Saturday’s print edition of the Dispatch.
