Last week, third grader Waylon Weaver was assigned Teacher of the Day at Heritage Elementary School. He brought to his class some special guests that included his Father/Songwriter Justin Weaver, along with two country artists Tyler Farr, and Jason Aldean.
The class asked questions and then the musicians performed a song for the class.
Teacher of the Day is an annual event at HES, created by fourth-grade teacher Wendy Millar.
