2020 Gold STAR Teacher of the Year Award
The Neosho Area Chamber of Commerce has long recognized the contributions great teachers make in the lives of our youth and fostering of future leaders in our communities, state and nation. Most successful people would say they have been profoundly influenced by the care, dedication, wisdom and enthusiasm of one or more teachers in their lives. It is for this reason that the Neosho Area Chamber of Commerce annually recognizes teachers who exemplify the highest standards of the teaching profession through our Gold STAR Teacher of the Year Awards.
