Teacher of the Year Named

Lufkin has a new teacher of the year. Megan Carisle is a middle school instructor at St. Patrick Catholic School. She's taught students there for four years now.

Carlisle was shocked to find out she'd won such a big honor. She is one of more than 4,000 teachers nationwide honored by WalMart's Teacher of the Year program.

Carlisle also received a $1,000 grant for her school and a hundred dollar WalMart gift card to buy supplies for St. Patrick.
