Special education teacher honored
Tammy Wilkins of Callao is due to be awarded the 2013 Farm Bureau Advantage Award for Area 28.
The award recognizes outstanding volunteer work with Virginia Special Olympics.
Wilkins, who is a special education teacher at Northumberland High School, took her Special Olympians to dances, soccer and basketball tournaments, put on a Christmas party for them and last year had a spring prom for them.
The Olympians Wilkins works with range in age from 10 to 70, Wilkins said Monday. The 70-year-old lady “bowls every week,” Wilkins noted.
