A Madison County school teacher is honored with an award this morning. 

Molly Clark got the “Jace Lacoste Athlete of the Year Award”, which was presented by Paul Lacoste Sports. She is a second grade teacher at Madison Crossing Elementary School. Officials say she leads by example in exercise, health and wellness. 

“Well especially for my students. It’s one thing to do it for myself, but for my students, they need us. That’s what we’re here for. We’re here to lead by example. We’re here to give them everything we can.” 

Ms. Clark is known as “The Beast” after working with Paul Lacoste.
