The Missourian's Dawn Kitchell made a special presentation Wednesday to Sheila Grgurich, a teacher at St. John the Baptist School, for her selection as 2011 Missourian In Education Teacher of the Year.

Grgurich was selected in December, and Kitchell recognized her in front of the entire school and presented her with a framed copy of the story, as well as a cash gift and newspaper subscription.

Grgurich donated her $100 prize to the school's tuition assistance program. Grgurich was the ninth local educator to be recognized by The Missourian for excellence in teaching with the newspaper.
