Congratulations to Mrs. Pat Hardin Vernon Teacher of the Year

There are only a few people you will meet in a lifetime that help shape who you will become. They leave a lasting impression and are always remembered as someone very special. That someone to me is Mrs. Patricia Hardin.

I met Mrs. Hardin my sophomore year of high school when she became my cheerleading coach. We clashed at first. She was much stricter than I was used to. She had high expectations.  She made us exercise and arrive on time. She expected good grades. She expected us to behave like ladies. So, we did. We never wanted to see a disappointed look on her face.

She coached, laughed, listened, cried, spoke the honest truth and mentored…each and every one of us. She was a role model, during a very difficult time in a teenage girl’s life. She helped mold me into who I have become and the morals that I live by. I am lucky to have been taught by her, blessed to still be her friend 20 years later, and thrilled to see her win this honor. Mrs. Hardin is a true champion at her profession.
