Bluefield, Va teacher takes home new yellow Camaro

Posted:

BLUEFIELD, W. Va (WVVA)-- Monday was a great day for one area teacher.

As the new 2013 Four Seasons Teacher of the Year, Laurie Arthur took home a new yellow Camaro from Cole Chevy.

Laurie is a seventh-grade math teacher at Graham Middle School.

Tom Cole presented her with the keys.

Laurie said she chose the car to be like "Bumblebee" from "Transformers" series, at her students' request.

"I wanted to pick something that would really be special for the year, and to make it really a prize for me," she said.  "I'm so excited to be honored as the Four Seasons Teacher of the Year!"

Cole said the Teacher of the Year award was meant to really honor teachers for what they do, in a big way.

"We wanted to make it really special. We wanted to do something that really had the "wow" factor," he said.

The Camaro is Laurie's free for a year.
