Savannah Exchange Club honors year's first Student, Teacher of the Month

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Savannah Exchange Club presented this year’s first Student and Teacher of the Month awards.

Members honored 12th grade student Cassidy Haynes and Social Studies teacher Mary Summerford

They are both with Savannah Arts Academy.

They told WTOC they were surprised and honored to be recognized for their hard work.

"I volunteer at my church weekly and I designed the poster for the Savannah Film Fest last year," said Haynes.

"My students do well and so I benefit from them doing well,” said Summerford.  “I get the recognition but my students make me look good."

Now both get to go on and compete for Student and Teacher of the Year in the spring.
