LELAND — The North Carolina Science Teachers Association has selected a local middle school teacher for a prestigious award.

David Johnson, a science teacher at Charter Day School, received the association’s “2016 Distinguished Service Award” for middle school, according to Roger Bacon Academy Spokesman Sawyer Batten.

Johnson received the award Thursday night at a banquet in Greensboro, North Carolina. The North Carolina Science Teachers Association selects one recipient each year for the elementary, middle and high school categories, Sawyer said.

The North Carolina Science Teachers Association was formed in 1969 with the mission of promoting excellence in science teaching and learning in North Carolina.

Charter Day School has been in operation since 2000 and is part of The Roger Bacon Academy, an educational management company that operates charter schools in Southeast North Carolina. Charter Day School is a tuition-free, open enrollment public year-round school located at 7055 Bacon’s Way in Leland.
