South County chambers of commerce and local businesses honored new teachers last week with breakfasts in Ruskin and Riverview.  At the event in Ruskin, held at the Destiny Church, teachers were given canvas bags of school supplies and entered into drawings for other classroom supplies, all donated by area businesses.
