The Utah Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) recently awarded fifth grade teacher Annette Stewart as the VFW Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Stewart received the award for her dedication to promoting Americanism and patriotism in the classroom.

During the assembly, members of the VFW spoke about what it takes to be a true patriot, how to properly honor the flag, how to thank a veteran and what it means to serve your country. They then called Mrs. Stewart on stage where they presented her with the award surrounded by her proud family.

Congratulations to Mrs. Stewart for your dedication to instilling our students with pride for our country and our flag.
