Scott Wade, general manager at Villa Ford, is passionate about teachers. He vividly remembers his favorite (and his least favorite) from his school years, and how they helped mold him into who he is today. He believes teachers are unsung heroes in our community who give copious amounts of personal time and energy to their students, and that it’s time they are recognized. This year Villa Ford is awarding four Teachers of Excellence with $500. This money can be used in their classroom for projects or supplies, or wherever it is most needed. Nominations are being accepted through social media from all over Orange County. To nominate your outstanding teacher, simply ‘MESSAGE’ written or video submissions on Villa Ford’s Facebook page.
