Teachers honored as heroes

FORT WORTH -- Two of the heroic teachers from Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore were honored over the weekend, during the Indy Car race at the Texas Motor Speedway.

Jennifer Simonds and Anna "Sam" Canady were co-grand marshals at Saturday night's "Firestone 550" Indy car race.

On May 20th, the teachers used their bodies to shield kindergartners as that monster tornado destroyed everything around them.
