Okaloosa Educator Inducted Into National Teachers Hall of Fame

Linda P. Evanchyk, an English and Journalism teacher at Choctawhatchee High School and a reading teacher at Feeder Elementary School in Okaloosa County, was one of five educators in the nation to be named as a member of the National Teachers Hall of Fame. Five outstanding teachers are recognized annually for their commitment and dedication to teaching children. Each teacher receives a plaque bearing their picture, name and brief description for display in their school and the Hall of Fame, a signet ring and lapel pin, $1,000 in materials for their school district, and a $1,000 scholarship for a student in the inductee’s school district who plans to pursue a degree in education. The National Teachers Hall of Fame was created in 1975 and is located in Emporia, Kan. For more information, visit
