Local teachers are getting a classroom boost thanks to one local business.
Each month, Print Centers gives a $1,000 scholarship to one Kern County teacher to help with their classroom needs.
This month’s recipient is Beardsley Jr. High School music teacher Jim Young. Young just celebrated his 38th year of teaching at Beardsley Jr. High, according to Print Centers.
Five other teachers have already received scholarships and Print Centers will continue giving them out until the end of the school year:
- Marc Halling: Frontier High School
- Ashlee Andreotti: Conley Elementary (Taft)
- Christopher John Jacobson: Chipman Junior High
- Yvonne Salazar Mares: Ming Child Dev. Center
- Scott Joseph: Bakersfield Christian High School
The teacher with the most overall votes at the end of the school year will win a $5,000 dream vacation, according Print Center.
