HENDERSONVILLE, TN (WSMV) - The Sumner County celebrated a teacher, who was retiring after 35 years.

More than a hundred cars showed up in front of Merrol Hyde Magnet School in Hendersonville on Friday morning. 

All was a surprise to honor first grade teacher Mrs. Dede Pinson.

The drive-by parade filled with students and co-workers, past and present, honking horns, holding signs, giving hugs.

Pinson was a beloved teacher, who undoubtedly had an incredible impact on the lives of thousands of children and who will be greatly missed by all.
