Ann Hannigan was my 11th grade English teacher. She was short and carried around a stick that she would hit you with. She yelled a lot, but she loved her students and had a genuine interest in their learning and well-being. Steven Black, Columbus
Mrs. Becky Thomas at Vardaman High School. She taught English. She really impacted my career choice and fostered my love of writing through her English and creative writing classes. She also taught my father. Nicole Thomas, Starkville
Her name was Ms. Rutland, my senior English teacher in high school. She expected so much out of me that I never thought that I could do. When I finally did it, I was ready to go to college.

Mrs. Hendrix was my favorite teacher. She taught English and really helped my understanding of the language and grammar. Temiko Davis, Starkville
Sarah Cotton, my first grade teacher. She made me like learning. She was the first person that ever read a story to me in such a way that brought things to life and would make my imagination take off. Wil Colom, Columbus
I would have to say Mrs. Carmen Haynes. She taught me History in high school. She would always bring in interesting things. She must have been really well traveled. Once she brought in some Vegemite and let us try it. Carmen McReynolds, Starkville
