Ray Parrish Teacher Of The Year

Northwest Guilford High School teacher Ray Parrish was honored this week as the NC History Teacher of the Year. Ray has taught at NW for 13 years, and he has coached NW's We The People team, which focuses on the US Constitution, to nine straight state titles.

Ray and I graduated from NW together in 1983, and he was just as distinguished as a person and student then. I can't say his success is a surprise, since he was one of the nicest and smartest people in our class.

At a time when there are lots of problem areas in our local schools, it is reassuring that one of our homegrown teachers is at the top of his profession.
