Seymour teacher recognized at event

The Indiana State Teachers Association recently honored a Seymour educator with the J.D. Miller Youth Activist Award.

RaeAnn Wintin, a special education teacher at Seymour High School, received the award because she has been involved in the state association and demonstrated leadership by serving in various positions with the Seymour Education Association.

She received the award during the association’s annual summer conference in Indianapolis.

The professional education employee organization’s 40,000 members work at every level of education. The association, founded in 1854, has affiliate organizations in each of the state’s 92 counties and in nearly 300 local school districts.
