Lois Turnage, music and band teacher at Pleasantville Elementary School has been selected as the January Ulrich Ford, Lincoln, Mercury Radio Teacher of the Month. Turnage has taught at Pleasantville for the past 29 years where she also coaches the Pleasantville High School dance team. She says she loves every aspect of music and teaching it to her students because it is a tremendous outlet for all ages and helps broaden the cultural and creative experience in life.

Mrs. Turnage will receive a $250 check to Pleasantville Elementary School to be used how she chooses and the use of the teacher of the month car for January.
