ADAIR, Iowa -- The U.S. Air Force Association has stepped up to honor a very deserving Iowa teacher.
On Friday, the organization named Adair-Casey/Guthrie Center High School teacher Joel Betterton the Regional Teacher of the Year.
Major General Linda Hemminger him for the award. Betterton taught all three of Hemminger's daughters more than a decade ago.
Although he's being honored for his teaching skills, Betterton says he is the one who is learning new lessons.
"Oh I learn from them every day," said Betterton. "They're great teachers. They don't necessarily realize the lessons that they're teaching, but they're great teachers."
