Somerset and Union County Schools’ Teachers of the Year were recognized Tuesday. The Somerset County Teacher Appreciation is part of a long time partnership with the Somerset County Education Association.

“Our Teacher Appreciation Nights are very special parts of our season," said Somerset Patriots President/General Manager Patrick McVerry. "We know how hard teachers work all year and we want to make sure they know that the community appreciates all that they do for our kids. 

"These nights are designed as a special thank you to all teachers and to showcase those that received the recognition as their schools’ Teacher of the Year.”

The Patriots are providing tickets to the teachers, their guests, and their classes to come out to the ballpark for these special nights.

The Patriots are encouraging all teachers to come out to the game to support their peers. All teachers that show their school ID badge at the Patriots Ticket Office on game day will receive a $5 Upper Box ticket to the Teacher Appreciation Night for their county.
