Published 12:00 am Tuesday, May 9, 2000

Every day hundreds of teachers walk into classrooms across the Miss-Lou to teach the community’s children.

&uot;The teachers really have the most impact on the education system,&uot; said Anne Stowers, of the Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce.

Natchez-Adams County will honor its teachers today with a reception lasting from 4 to 6 p.m. Copiah-Lincoln Community College Vo-Tech Building. Stowers think teachers need to be thanked for their hard work that is so important to economic development and Natchez’s future.

&uot;(Teachers) are in the trenches everyday,&uot;&160; she said. &uot;They really don’t get the appreciation they deserve.&uot;

The reception is sponsored by Copiah-Lincoln, The Natchez Democrat and the Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce. All teachers in the community are invited.

Maryann Langnes, co-chairman of the chamber’s education committee, is helping to coordinate the reception.

The reception is to &uot;let the teachers know we appreciate them and (that) they are doing a good job because they don’t seem to get much recognition,&uot; she said.

&uot;We need to commit a lot of time to teachers and (students’) education.&uot;
