RINCON -- South Effingham Elementary School teacher Jincy Hinely believes in her students. She has lots of people who believe in her, too.

Hinely was recognized as the Effingham County teacher of the year during the Effingham County Board of Education's Annual Teacher of the Year Banquet presented by the Effingham Herald. The banquet was conducted at the New Ebenezer Retreat Center on Oct. 11.

"I cannot accept this award without thanking all the teachers, staff members, coaches and professors who saw my potential, believed in me and inspired me to be who I am today," Hinely said. "I am so honored to be recognized with such wonderful teachers from all over our county. We are blessed to be working in such a great school system with awesome professionals."
