A Campbellsville teacher has been honored by WBKO television station and Leachman Buick GMC for teaching her students the value of reading.
Karen Skaggs, a second-grade teacher at Campbellsville Elementary School, was surprised in her classroom in March by WBKO reporter Lauren Hanson.
Just after 1 o'clock that afternoon, Hanson and a news crew walked into Skaggs' classroom and presented her with a check in the amount of $500 for her efforts in motivating her students.
As of the broadcast's airing, the second graders in Skaggs' class had read more than 4,000 books.
