Teacher gets free car for a year

Bluefield Daily Telegraph

BLUEFIELD — When her students heard she was getting a car for a year, they urged her to get a “bumblebee” like the one in the Transformers movies.

Laura Arthur, a seventh-grade math teacher at Graham Middle School, was recently named the 2013 Four Seasons Teacher of the Year. This evening she received a free 2014 Chevrolet Camaro to drive for a year.

Arthur laughed before starting the car for the first time.

“At school, they’re calling me Killer Bee,” she said.

“We wanted to make the award special,” said Tom Cole of Cole Chevrolet. “We wanted it to be something to really show our appreciation to teachers and give them something to be excited about.”

Four Seasons Teacher of the Year is sponsored by the Bluefield Daily Telegraph,  Cole Chevrolet, and WVVA.
