The announcement was made today at the Burroughs Wellcome Fund luncheon in Cary, NC.

“North Carolina’s teachers are valued professionals who are providing a critical service to future generations of students,” said John Burris, president of the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.

As North Carolina Teacher of the Year, Ford will spend the next school year traveling the state as an ambassador for more than 95,000 teachers in the state. Ford, one of 9,000 teachers in CMS, is the first CMS teacher to win the prestigious award in more than 40 years. A CMS teacher won the first state teacher award in 1970.
