Swain County Teacher receives Deitz NCCAT HES scholarship

Congratulations to Trudi Gunter of Swain County Middle School in Swain County on receiving the Boyce T. Deitz NCCAT Honored Educator Scholarship. This scholarship honors a native of Jackson County, Boyce T. Deitz, who graduated from Sylva-Webster High School and attended Western Carolina University. Upon graduation, he gained immediate local respect by returning to Sylva-Webster to coach. Then, from 1977 to 1997, Coach Deitz served as head football coach and athletic director at Swain County High School, winning five state championships, which ultimately established him as a coaching legend in the state.

The scholarship entitled Trudi to travel and substitute teacher reimbursement and $250 for her classroom. For more on the program visit - http://www.nccat.org/programs/honored-educator-scholarship-application
