BOONE — With Extra Yard for Teachers Week taking place between Sept. 16-24, it was the perfect opportunity to honor teachers at Watauga County Schools when ESPN’s College GameDay visited Boone.
Watauga High School chorus teacher Brandon Winbush and Green Valley School and Mabel School art teacher Ashley Tate each received a $1,000 Donors Choose grant to support their classroom activities and were also shown on College GameDay along with other local teachers.
What a wonderful surprise! Thank you @espn @CollegeGameDay for the two $1,000 @DonorsChoose grants to support our arts educators! So fun for them to be featured on a live national broadcast! @mrwinbushchoir @tate_teacher pic.twitter.com/o43PxlLLna— Watauga County Schools (@WataugaSchools) September 17, 2022
