Hertrich Buick Chevy of Pocomoke Presents Somerset Teacher of the Year with New Car

CRISFIELD, MD, September 19, 2022 – Staff and students at Carter G. Woodson Elementary School recently gathered in celebration to see 2022 Somerset County Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Jennifer Carey, receive the generous gift of a new car to drive for the 2022-2023 school year. Hertrich Chevy Buick of Pocomoke delivered a new 2022 Chevrolet Equinox to the first grade teacher at a surprise outdoor assembly, with Carey’s three children and parents in attendance. 
 
The tradition of presenting the Somerset County Teacher of the Year with a new car began in 2018 in a special partnership with Hertrich Family of Automobile Dealerships and Somerset County Public Schools. Carey will have the car for one school year, during which time she will only be responsible for fuel costs.
Carey is Somerset County Public Schools’ candidate for 2023 Maryland Teacher of the Year. Although not a finalist, Carey will be featured alongside all other Maryland Teacher of the Year candidates, in a special 30-minute television broadcast on Maryland Public Television’s MPT2 on October 6, 2022 at 8:00 PM EST, for the Maryland Teacher of the Year Announcement.
