Jeddie Brumley was honored Tuesday morning in front of her students and co-workers. She was chosen as the 23rd Street Walmart's Teacher of the Year.
The store got more than 80-nominations. Brumley was nominated by Tory Reichert, a student she's known for about six years.
Reichert says she's been wanting to nominate Brumley for a while, and finally wrote the essay to do it.
Brumley received a plaque, t-shirt and 100-dollar gift certificate to buy school supplies at Walmart. The school will also get 1000-dollars for the honor.
