Somerset Co. Teacher of the Year receives car to use this school year

DEAL ISLAND, Md. – Students and staff at Deal Island Elementary School gathered on Monday to watch the Somerset County Teacher of the Year receive a new car to use during the school year.

Hertrich family of Automobile Dealerships gave fourth grade teacher Christina South a brand new 2019 Toyota Rav-Four, all to say thanks for her service to her students and Somerset County Schools.

We’re told the tradition of honoring the teacher of the year with a new car started last year in a special partnership with Hertrich Toyota of Pocomoke and Somerset County Schools. South will have the car for one school year, and all she has to pay for is gas.
