Philippi Middle School Teacher Nominated for Johnsonville Best of US Contest

Posted: Updated:

A local teacher who helped save middle school sports in his county is getting some added recognition.

Philippi Middle School teacher Nick Mayle has been nominated for Johnsonville's Best of US contest.

The contest recognizes educators across the country who go the extra mile for their students and community.

The winner of the contest will take home $10,000 and Mayle said if he wins, he'll probably spread that around.

"I would probably end up giving a lot of it away, because it wasn't just me that earned it or that would win the competition, it was a group effort," Mayle said.

You can vote in the Best of US Contest from Friday, May 23 through June 14.
