School honors Winchester

THOMASVILLE — The two new science laboratories at Thomas County Middle School were dedicated to the memory of longtime Thomas County science educator Jackie Winchester during the career-science wing open house on Sunday.  Winchester taught in the Thomas County School System for 44 years.

Dr. Debra Knight, assistant superintendent of Administrative Services, served as principal of the middle school and had the opportunity to work with Winchester for many years.  She spoke at the open house dedication ceremony about Winchester’s devotion to her career in education.

“Mrs. Jackie Winchester lived for teaching science to the students of Thomas County,” said Knight. “She was filled with joy each day as her detailed lesson plans revealed hours of planning for her students. Her classroom was a habitat for learning. It is with esteem honor that I congratulate the Winchester family for the legacy Jackie leaves for building strong students for life.”

The two fully equipped science labs include water and gas connections and a fume hood, allowing middle school students to complete sophisticated science experiments.
