NEWPORT-The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRSEF) recently named Newport resident Sissy Ivy one of the recipients of the 2013 Faces of Diversity Award, a national award given to those who represent the diversity and spirit of entrepreneurship of the restaurant industry.

Ivy is a ProStart Educator at the Sevier County Career and Technical Center where she teaches Culinary I, II, and III.

"I have worked as an educator for the past six years," said Ivy. "Most of the time, when you have a job, you expect instant rewards rather than taking your time and working your way up. Well, I get instant rewards every day when I see these kids in our program grow into young people. That is very gratifying as a teacher."

Ivy was nominated for the Faces of Diversity Award by her students.
