Jefferson High School teacher wins $500

ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)- Kristen is a tireless educator. She not only has a full-time classroom, but devotes so much of her time to Student Council and Student Government along with overseeing so many sporting activities and helping with concession stand details. We are a small school district and she is constantly taking up the slack in every direction. She also is such a role model for our children.

Kristen is always there for her students during and after school.

She is constantly guiding them and pushing them to their fullest potential. She deserves this recognition so much! She's the kind of educator that you hope and pray your children get the opportunity to meet along the way.

Ms. Wilkey received $500.00 from Weber Chevrolet (www.weberchevrolet.com).
