Congratulations are in order for CAJT Principal, Mr. Brian O'Connor on his being named the Peabody Educator of the Year for 2012. In the spring, Mr. O'Connor was notified that he was a finalist in the competition sponsored by Peabody Energy. At a special dinner, earlier this month with more than thirty other educators from around the state, who were all well deserving individuals, Mr. O'Connor was named the winner. His wife and parents were on hand to celebrate the event. In an interview later Mr. O'Connor said "I was shocked, especially after listening to the accomplishments of many of the other finalists". The staff and students at Nottingham CAJT High School were anything but surprised. Congratulations Mr. O'Connor.
