Circle science teacher a winner in 'Regis and Kelly' contest

A Circle Middle School science teacher was named one of five Top Teachers on "Live With Regis and Kelly" this morning.

Davis Laughlin is set to appear on the nationally broadcast show next week.

Laughlin, who has taught more than 30 years, was selected through a nationwide popular vote on the show's Web site.

He was nominated for the contest by one of his students, eighth-grader Ridge Walker, and Ridge's family.

"I don't know anyone who doesn't like him or he's not their favorite teacher," Ridge said earlier this week.
