A HOUSE RESOLUTION

TO CONGRATULATE HEIDI DICKERSON UPON BEING NAMED AYNOR HIGH SCHOOL'S TEACHER OF THE YEAR AND TO WISH HER CONTINUED DELIGHT IN TEACHING CHILDREN IN THE PALMETTO STATE.

Whereas, it is altogether fitting and proper that the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives should pause in their deliberations to express their gratitude to Heidi Dickerson for her significant contributions to the education of the state's most valuable resource, our children; and

Whereas, a graduate of Conway High School, Heidi Dickerson prepared for her life's vocation by earning a bachelor's degree in business from Coastal Carolina University, working there during her college years and after graduation; and

Whereas, after Coastal Carolina, she worked for the Horry County Schools in the district office where she was in charge of substitute teachers whose enthusiasm for teaching engendered in her a desire to move into the field of education; and

Whereas, realizing the shortage of business educators, Heidi Dickerson completed the Program of Alternate Certification for Educators (PACE) program to secure certification. PACE is a program that enables those who want to become teachers to continue to work and earn certification at the same time; and

Whereas, she came to Aynor High School after teaching five years at the Academy for Technology and Academics, and for seven years she has been teaching Image Editing 1 and 2 and serves as the yearbook advisor at Aynor High; and

Whereas, Heidi Dickerson credits her outstanding teacher mentors who encouraged her through the first rigorous years that enabled her to gain the experience needed to succeed in the classroom; and

Whereas, thankful for the opportunity to inspire young students in the classroom, as well as through positive posters, quotes, and inspirational decorations she places throughout the school, she values the way the students inspire her as she teaches; and

Whereas, Heidi Dickerson married her high school sweetheart, Hunter, and together they are rearing two fine sons, ages four and ten, who love the outdoors and enjoy hunting and fishing. She follows along to pursue her pastime of spending time with and photographing her family in their pursuits; and

Whereas, grateful for her distinguished service of educating young people in the Palmetto State, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives take great pleasure in extending best wishes to Aynor High School's Teacher of the Year Heidi Dickerson as she continues to inspire her students to become productive citizens in their communities. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That that the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, congratulate Heidi Dickerson upon being named Aynor High School's Teacher of the Year and wish her continued delight in teaching children in the Palmetto State.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Heidi Dickerson.
