Dorney told the story of his journey to becoming a teacher

“I wasn’t always going to be a teacher,” said Kent Dorney, third-grade teacher at Lake Holcombe Elementary School. “It was not pinned on my radar that I wanted to be in a classroom. I did know that I wanted to work with kids.”

Dorney told the story of his journey to becoming a teacher, at the 24th annual Excellence in Education Recognition Banquet. 

The banquet was held to honor students and teachers from the Cornell and Lake Holcombe school districts April 24, at the Holcombe United Methodist Church. Students were recognized for their academic achievement and each senior chose a teacher for the positive impact they have in their lives.
