Local teachers honored
A number of teachers from Storm Lake have been selected by former students to appear in the 2002 edition of the Who's Who Among American Teachers publication.
The seventh annual book honors educators who have helped guide students selected to appear in this year's Who's Who Among American High School Students, which honors pupils with a high academic and community record.
