The Miller Media Group and Tradewind Energy are 2 weeks into a weekly recognition of Christian County Educators, by naming an "Educator of the Week" thru mid-October.
From nominations submitted on the Facebook pages of taylorvilledailynews-dot-com and the 4 Miller Media Group music stations, the public can nominate a teacher, principal or administrator that's made a difference in children's lives.
Tom Swierczewski, who is heading up Tradewind Energy's efforts to expand their wind farm electricity generation in Illinois, told Regional Radio News that Tradewind's sponsorship of the Miller Media Group Christian County "Educator of the Week" goes back to his upbringing.
The Miller Media Group and Tradewind Energy announce an "Educator of the Week" from names submitted, every Tuesday, with the honoree interviewed by Regional Radio, featured in our local newscasts, and on taylorvilledailynews.com. Each honoree also receives a 100-dollar Greater Taylorville Chamber gift certificate from Tradewind Energy and the Miller Media Group.
