In the immortal (but slightly altered) words of Jay Stewart, the announcer for Let’s Make A Deal since it first came on in the 1960s: “These (teachers) dressed as they are, come from all over the county to make deals (and teach students) here in the education place of Chester County…”

That would have been an appropriate intro for the Chester County Chamber of Commerce’s Teacher Appreciation Day, since the event brought back last year’s popular “Let’s Make a Deal” theme, hosted not by Monty Hall, but by an emcee just as well known (in Chester County circles, if not across America,) Chester County’s own “top trader” Rick Jiran, VP of Government and Community Relations for Duke Energy.
