Kathryn Shuler - William Blount High School: Teacher Penny Kimsey said Kathryn Shuler at one time didn’t value classroom time and missed as many as 26 days in one semester. That changed when she became a peer tutor in Kimsey’s class. “She didn’t just come to school, she began working as soon as she arrived. She crosses every ‘t’ and dots every ‘i’,” Kimsey said.
Shuler was surprised by the honor. “I wasn’t expecting it,” she said. “It was exciting.”
