South Panola High School business teacher Dilcy Ivy was surprised this week to learn that the 2009 school annual had been dedicated in her honor.

This year’s Tigerteer, “2009 Pieces to the Puzzle” includes a dedication page with photos of Ivy from her childhood and throughout her career. The text acknowledges 41 years of teaching, starting at Patton Lane High School in 1968.
