One of the fastest growing metro communities in Georgia, Locust Grove, honored
agriculture teacher Allen Nasworthy as "Teacher of the Year" yesterday.
Nasworthy is a first year teacher in Henry County at Locust Grove High School.
His selection was based on his excellence in classroom instruction and dedication to his students outside the classroom.
Locust Grove FFA has excelled during his one year tenure, encompassing a diversity of participation in 10 career development events from tractor driving, poultry judging and floral design to extemporaneous and creed speaking.
Nasworthy noted to faculty of peers "Teaching is not just what we do; it is what we are. We are a group of dedicated, passionate professionals who enter our classrooms each morning not only to teach our students about the world as it is, but for the world as it can be."
Let Mr. Nasworthy be an inspiration to all of us committed to living and working as teachers - may we inspire, create and invoke in our students the price and confidence to make this world a better place.
Applauds to you, Allen Nasworthy, job well done.
