Posted: Updated:

Two Pine Belt teachers were honored by the Mississippi Power Foundation on Wednesday at The University of Southern Mississippi Trent Lott Center.

Suzanne Allmon of Oak Grove High School and Mary Moak of Petal Upper Elementary both received the company's prestigious Alan R. Barton Excellence in Teaching Award.

Named after the late Alan R. Barton, president of Mississippi Power from 1980 to 1989, the award is designed to recognize and honor excellence in the classroom.

Out of 65 nominees, the Mississippi Power Foundation chose six teachers overall in the company's 23-county service territory to recognize. 

Each winner received a plaque, and cash awards for their classroom and career development.
