Local Teachers Recognized as 2021 McDonald’s Outstanding Educators

26 local educators were chosen from more than 425 nominations.


Kimberly Speakman, a Special Education teacher at Logan-Rogersville High School, has been recognized in the second annual 2021 McDonald’s Outstanding Educators. Speakman was selected from a pool of more than 425 nominations.


The award honors educators who exhibit the ultimate dedication to their students and contribute to the improvement of education in our most challenging times. Local McDonald’s Owner/Operator Phil Stocker says recognizing teachers for all they do for the youth in the communities they serve is a top priority for local McDonald’s restaurants.


“Our local educators are the definition of perseverance and loyalty. They show up and give their all day after day to make sure our students thrive,” said Stocker. “We’re excited to recognize those who go above and beyond for our students through the Outstanding Educator awards.”


Winners of the outstanding educator award each receive a $100 Visa gift card to use toward their classroom; a coffee mug; certificates and McDonald’s coupons to provide to parents with outstanding students throughout the year. Local McDonald’s restaurants added this year one educator to be awarded $1,000 Visa Gift Card as well.
