South Carolina Teacher of the Year.

Since 1999, BMW Manufacturing has been a sponsor of the annual South Carolina Teacher of the Year gala. The event is a testament to the daily dedication and commitment of South Carolina’s educators. Congratulations to 2021-2022 South Carolina Teacher of the Year, Amy Carter, an English teacher at Chapin High School in School District Five of Lexington and Richland Counties. 

As part of the celebration, BMW Manufacturing, the program’s premier sponsor, handed Carter the keys to a 2021 BMW X5 M50i. The Alpine White BMW X5 has Black Vernasca Leather interior with the Executive, Dynamic Handling, and Parking/Driver Assistance Packages along with the 21-inch M Y-spoke bi-color wheels. Carter will drive the X5 during her year-long sabbatical from the classroom as South Carolina’s public education ambassador. 

Along with the use of a BMW X5 M50i for one year, Carter receives a $25,000 cash award, a set of Micheln tires, an exclusive Jostens Teacher of the Year ring, a Bojangles $2,000 award, and complimentary admission to participate in Leadership South Carolina. She will also serve in a one-year residency at the Center of Educator Recruitment, Retention and Advancement (CERRA) and serve as the state spokeperson for over 50,000 educators.
