Chicken farmer has been a nickname for the poultry industry leader-turned-science teacher at Sequoyah High School since he made the career change twelve years ago. Recently, Brian Carnes earned a new nickname: Cherokee County School Districts 2017 Teacher of the Year.

I was very surprised and excited just to be named Sequoyah High Schools Teacher of the Year; its such an excellent school. I know all of the great teachers we have in Cherokee County, so this is just kind of overwhelming to me, said Carnes.

The CCSD Teacher of the Year is selected by a panel of community leaders who evaluate applications from each schools Teacher of the Year. The school winners are selected by their peers. Mr. Carnes will serve as CCSDs nominee for Georgia Teacher of the Year; the winner will be named in the spring.
