On Monday, Nov. 15, 2010, the Bibb County School District named its Teacher of the Year at a ceremony held in the Central High School Sidney Lanier Performing Arts Center.In front of a crowd of more than 400 teachers, principals, family and community members, Northeast High School English/Language Arts Teacher Jadun McCarthy was named the 2011 Bibb County Teacher of the Year.McCarthy's application will be submitted to the Georgia Department of Education for the Georgia Teacher of the Year Program.
 
A product of the Bibb County School District, McCarthy initially was going to pursue a career in law. The night of his graduation from the University of Georgia School of Law, he realized that, instead of working in a system that locks up people, he would rather follow in the footsteps of the people that provided him the tools to be successful: his teachers.
 
"I wanted to have the same influence on someone that many of my wonderful teachers had on me. I wanted to stop some young man or young woman from stumbling onto the wrong path," said McCarthy. "I wanted to be a teacher."
 
McCarthy serves as the Academic Bowl Team Head Coach, chairs the school's 'Bridging the Gap' Eight-Step Process Achievement Initiative team, and is a member of the Georgia Association of Educators. Since 2007, he has been recognized each year as one of Northeast High School's End of Course Test Start Teachers.McCarthy also serves as the Junior and Senior Class Advisor, coordinates the Junior/Senior Prom and all Senior Activities, including the annual Senior Class Trip to Orlando. Students have recognized him as the 2008, 2009 and 2010 Advisor of the Year.
