Volusia County Schools’ 69 Teachers of the Year were announced and honored in a special outdoor ceremony hosted by VCS, FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County Schools, The Daytona Tortugas, and presented by AdventHealth, the official healthcare champion of VCS.

Each of Volusia's public schools completes a formal process to select its Teacher of the Year. The winners, chosen by their peers, are nominated to compete for the honor of Volusia County Schools’ 2024 Teacher of the Year, to be announced on January 20. The current Volusia County Teacher of the Year is Madison Miller who was nominated while at Chisholm Elementary in New Smyrna Beach and is now assistant principal at Palm Terrace Elementary in Daytona Beach.

Miller and 2021 VCS Teacher of the Year Josie Ruth Stumpf were among the VIP speakers at Thursday evening’s all-star-themed Teacher of the Year reception held at Jackie Robinson Ballpark. School Board Chair Ruben Colón brought greetings on behalf of the School Board, and Superintendent Dr. Carmen Balgobin praised the Teachers of the Year for leading with grace and respect. FUTURES President Heather Bond Vargas thanked the many sponsors who make the Teacher of the Year program possible including AdventHealth represented by Vice President of Ancillary Services Scott Clifton.
