(WHAS11) - The Excel Award presentation in Shelby County is traditionally, the last award for the academic year and the recipient is also Shelby County's Teacher of the year.
The Shelby County Excel Award teacher is Stephanie Schmidt and her colleagues describe her as a tireless teacher, who never gives up on a student.
When her students leave 5th grade, they are prepared to be independent learners.
Schmidt is the last of our 13 Excel Award winners for this year.
The teachers from this year's Excel class will be honored at the Excelebration banquet next September.
The Excel Award begins its 22nd academic year in November.
