MOUNT VERNON — The newest additions to the educational forces in Knox County were recognized Thursday morning at the annual New Educators’ Breakfast hosted by the Knox County Chamber of Commerce.
The breakfast, which the Chamber has organized for over 20 years, welcomed new and veteran educators, as well as community partners. Chamber Executive Director Carol Grubaugh highlighted the opportunities and partnerships available in the county, while welcoming the educators to the breakfast, held at Foster Hall in the Ariel Arena on the Mount Vernon Nazarene University campus.
“We love doing this event,” Grubaugh said during her introduction. “Certainly educators go to many conferences, but what a great opportunity to be in a room where you can fellowship with educators right here in your own county. No matter our background, our education or profession, there’s one thing that we all have in common and that is that we can share our own stories of our favorite teacher, principal, superintendent, counselor or coach.”
