Selma High School agriculture teacher Roy Swift was selected as Fresno County’s Teacher of the Year last week. “It has been a pleasure to teach in Selma Unified,” said Swift. “It has truly been fun teaching the agriculture program and to have watched it grow into what it is now, an outstanding program for students to learn agriculture education.”

Swift, in his 25th year teaching in Selma, was one of three teachers vying for the countywide award sponsored by the Educational Employees Credit Union (EECU). Swift was named Teacher of the Year at the Selma Unified Teachers Association/Selma Unified School District 2013 Spring Tea.

“Roy Swift is an outstanding educator that represents the quality of the teaching staff at Selma High School,” said Mark Babiarz, principal at Selma High. “His commitment to students, parents and the community is reflected in his selection of this award.”

Beth Dooley, EECU president and CEO, presented a sculpture award to Swift at the event Oct. 24 in the William Saroyan Theatre in downtown Fresno.

“EECU is proud to be a part of this distinguished event that highlights the contributions and successes of all the honorees,” said Dooley.

Marcus P. Johnson, retired Sanger Unified School District superintendent, was chosen as Administrator of the Year, and Setha J. Nhim, parent trainer for the Fresno County Office of Education, was selected as Employee of the Year.
