2008 Kansas Teacher of the Year

The State's top educator will be riding in style. The teacher of the year accepted her new set of car keys Monday.

Jeri Powers, the 2008 Teacher of the year, could not be happier. She was presented with a 2008 Dodge Avenger, thanks to the Enterprise Foundation which is providing a six month lease through Enterprise Rent-A-Car. She will be driving the car 15,000 miles as she travels to different conferences and conventions representing Kansas. In addition to the car lease she will also receive $1500 in ethanol gasoline from the Kansas corn commission.

Jeri is a reading specialist at Riverview Elementary school in Shawnee, she was chosen from approximately 100 candidates.
