This annual event honors the K-12 “Educators of the Year” selected by each of the twenty-four public school districts in Hamilton County, including Mason City Schools (Warren County).

Taylor High School Teacher, David Kohrs was honored at the annual Celebrate Excellence Breakfast after being named Three Rivers Local School District’s 2018 Educator of the Year.

“As Principal of Taylor High School, I have observed David’s masterful classroom management skills as well as his relentless commitment to the growth and well-being of his students”, commented Ceair Baggett.

Mr. Kohrs, a Spanish Teacher at Taylor High School is well respected by his students and his peers. In 2017, fellow teacher, Sue Diemer, nominated Mr. Kohrs for a Hero of Character Award stating, “As a veteran of the Air Force, David shows, by example, how to be respectful, how to listen, and certainly how to care for each student and each member of the high school staff.”
