Educator of the Year sponsor King Buick GMC feels the best way to give back to the community is through education support; building strong programs that will produce a highly trained workforce that can increase innovation and energy for American manufacturing. To honor Thompson School District educators, King Buick GMC will provide a 60-day lease on a new automobile to each of the category winners and a 24-month lease to the 2019 Thompson Education Foundation Educator of the Year.
