De Queen Teacher of the Year
Ninth grade junior high teacher Terry Brackett was honored as the De Queen Teacher of the Year during last night's De Queen/Sevier County Chamber of Commerce banquet. School officials describe Brackett as a tireless advocate for her students who brings an incredible devotion to education each and every day of school. They added that she is a wonderful asset to both the school and its students.
After the tragic loss of her son, Austin, last year, Brackett began speaking to local churches and organizations to share her faith in God and provide inspirational testimony to others who are facing extreme difficulties in their lives. Despite the losses in her life, Brackett has committed herself to helping others in need. Congratulations to this excellent and deserving teacher!
