The Golden Isles Retired Educators (GIREA) recently honored an eightgrade student at each of five middle schools. The student is selected by the principal and the student selects the teacher who has been most influential.

Pictured are the students at McIntosh Middle School. Pictured are Dr. Melissa Williams, GIREA member, from left; Amanda Deverger, teacher; Kayla Ray, student; Marion Cherne, GIREA president; and Scott Brooker, McIntosh Middle principal.
