Mix 93-1 along with Half Price Books and Aspen Creek Grill are proud to recognize outstanding teachers from our East Texas classrooms!

This week's recipient is Russell Thomas, teaching Agricultural Mechanics at Gilmer High School.

Mr. Thomas was nominated by one of his students who wrote this about him:

Mr. Thomas should receive this award because he is the most warm-hearted, selfless, and committed individual I have ever met. From his devotion to preparing his students for jobs and life after high school to his compassion for every single student he teaches, there are very few people I have ever met who love their job as much as he does. Mr. Thomas works to ensure all of his students succeed both in and out of school. He lends a helping hand as needed, even when it may take up some of his time after school. He has a family and life of his own but still commits to teaching his students every day both before and after school not because he has to, but because he truly wants to. Mr. Thomas is the most unique person I have ever met. I can honestly say I would not be the person I am if it were not for him."

Mix 93-1 along with Half Price Books and Aspen Creek Grill are proud to recognize Mr. Thomas for making such an impact on this student and are proud to name him the Mix 93-1 Teacher Of The Week.
