Billinghurst Middle School Teacher Named Excellence in Education Award Winner


Reno, Nev. (KRNV &

Every month News Four recognizes a Washoe County teacher who is going above and beyond for their students.

Recently evening anchor Shelby Sheehan surprised Billinghurst Middle school teacher Lacy Snelling in front of the entire student body after the school's big performance of "The Lion King".

Snelling teaches 7th and 8th grade English and will be wrapping up her 16th year this spring.

Her students say she is always willing to help them academically or personally. Snelling makes herself available during lunch breaks, after-school

and volunteers at school events in the evening.

Parents say her dedication, doesn't go unnoticed and makes the students more dedicated.

Snelling taught elementary school for 12 years prior to her job at Billinghurst but is loving her graduation to middle school!

Congratulations to Lacy Snelling, News Four's Excellence in Education Award Winner for March 2016!
