TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Congratulations are in order for Chelsea Johnson Muir.

Leon County School leaders named her this year's Glenn-Howell Award recipient.

Each year, one of five recipients takes home the honor given to a teacher for making an outstanding impact on minority students.

The Godby teacher says it's a blessing to be able to give back to the community that shaped her.

"One of the blessings, the greatest blessings, is I get to teach and coach at the same place, at Godby High school, where I was a student and a player," said Johnson Muir. "And just trying to build those footprints and leave footprints along the lines of a servant's heart. Just allowing these young people to know that they can be and do anything they want to be, and there is proof in the pudding, and that's me."

Muir is the second teacher at Godby High School to receive a prestigious award this school year.
