Mr. Fred Mintert, art teacher at Carthage Junior High School, has been named Middle School Art Educator of the Year by the Missouri Art Education Association (MAEA). Mr. Mintert was chosen by his peers as an exemplary educator who displays great leadership, commitment to teaching and accomplishments within the classroom, as well as the organization. MAEA stated:

“Within our organization's great community of fantastic educators, Fred Mintert has been chosen as this year's Middle School Educator of the Year. We applaud his commitment to his students and encourage other educators to take notice as he is a living example of what our organization is all about.”

Mr. Chuck Sailor, physical education teacher at Fairview and assistant track coach at Carthage High School, was awarded the Charlie Finch Distinguished Coach Award, an honor given to the state's top assistant coach by the Missouri Track and Cross Country Coaches Association. The award is presented to coaches who have served five or more years as an assistant and made significant, verifiable contributions to their sport.

Mr. Sailor has been coaching track and field for eight years in the Carthage School District. During that time he had 13 state qualifiers in the long, triple and 110 hurdles, with six medalists. In 2014, four triple-jumpers competed at sectionals and three went on to medal at the state competition.

Mr. Sailor is pictured with Mr. Andy Youngworth, CHS Athletic Director, at the MTCCCA awards banquet held in Columbian, Missouri, on December 12.
