Every year students nominate their favorite teachers with the hope that they could become the next Golden Apple recipient.

This school year, South’s very own Dr. Virginia Harper made it to the top thirty of three-thousand participants.  Although she wasn’t selected for the top six, South is proud of its favorite teacher.

For being a finalist, she said her awards were, “a free Florida ECHO tour, dinner, and the chance to be interviewed twelve different times!”

Everyone knows Dr. Harper as the loud, eccentric reading and Composition teacher here at South. All can agree she has impacted every single one of her students, and that is why she made it so far.

I personally had her as my Composition I and II teacher, and I can say she makes sure all of her students put their work in and receive the grades they deserve.

“Principal Layner sent me a note saying that she values me even though I did not win. I love where I work and I’ve had a good career here and will keep working, awards or not,” Harper said about her amazing accomplishment.

Dr. Harper has announced her retirement for next January, so if you have not had the chance to take one of her classes, I strongly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.
