Kenai Central High School teacher Elizabeth Burck receives the award honoring her as the Kenai Peninsula BP Teacher of the Year at the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce luncheon Tuesday from Tammie Anderson of BP.
Anderson said the program started on the peninsula in spring 2000. Five teachers are chosen each semester and receive a $500 savings bond. One teacher is chosen from the five as teacher of the year and receives an additional $1,500 for furthering education and a bronze plaque that sits on an engraved jade slab.
