Year Awarded: 2010 Arthur County High School Social Studies and Economics

Lynn Channer grew up moving around every few years, since her father was in the military. When she interviewed for a teaching position in Arthur, Neb., she fell in love with it immediately and she's been there ever since. Channer teaches social studies and economics at Arthur County High School, which has about 40 students enrolled in grades 7-12. Even so, Channer has led her students to win the Nebraska Stock Market Game several times.
"I have been given the gift of teaching, and I feel blessed that each day I get to do what I love." Lynn Channer
