“Teachers have a special mission of encouraging and molding our children, to become the person they want to be by dreaming big dreams and realizing those dreams,” said Tara Eudy, Anson Bank & Trust’s board of directors’ chair, who recognized Norwood. “Daniel received a Bachelor of Science in social studies education from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. Mr. Norwood is in his eighth year of teaching in Anson County and enjoys coaching baseball, sightseeing, visiting old cemeteries and politics.”

They are providing jobs for local people and making a difference in Anson County,” stated Dana Maness, president of Anson Bank & Trust.
Norwood was presented with a monetary donation and a desk clock frame from Anson Bank & Trust. The clock frame featured an original piece of art depicting his area of teaching. Bob and David Sikes received a grandfather wall clock in appreciation of his contribution to the local economy.
