Suzie Vong, owner of the World of Suzie Vong in the plaza near Home Depot in Sun City Center, made the holidays brighter for five local teachers. On Dec. 16, Vong threw a party to recognize the teachers of the year from five area schools, presenting them and The American Business Women’s Association with checks totaling $1,743. The teachers of the year were Stacie Cleary of East Bay High School, Karen Boosinger of Hillsborough Community College, Christine Wasylkiw of Lennard High School, Tania Villa of Eisenhower Middle School, and Liana Daigle of Shields Middle School. School administrators were also invited and were presented with poinsettias. The American Business Women’s Association provides college funding for students.
