A high school science teacher is proving he knows his scientific theory by earning a state award.

Franklin High chemistry teacher Andy Mangrum was named the Tennessee Science Teacher Association’s (TSTA) High School Science Educator of the Year.

Mangrum was nominated by his peers for the award based on his written philosophy and leadership record in science education.

In recognition of this honor, Mangrum received a cash reward and a plaque at the TSTA conference at the beginning of November.

“I am honored and grateful to be recognized by TSTA for my work within in our district and across our state,” Mangrum said. “The many efforts that led to this award have undoubtedly enhanced my experiences with students in the classroom, and I look forward to continually supporting excellence in science education for all students in Williamson County.”
