Nitro, WV -

A fifth grade teacher from Rock Branch Elementary discovered on Friday, Feb. 28, that she was the winner in a national sweepstakes. The "Share Your Love, Win Your Wedding" contest was sponsored by David's Bridal. The winner, Jessica Musick, won $25,000 for her upcoming wedding.

Musick, who's also an alumna of Rock Branch Elementary, was selected from thousands of contestants across the United States. She'll also receive dresses, jewelry and accessories from David's Bridal for the Rock Branch Elementary children's costume room to aid in the creative learning process.

The award was announced during a surprise presentation at the school on Friday. Musick became emotional after learning she won the contest. She described how the money will help in her wedding plans. "My fiance and I were just talking about how we're a little tight on money and he actually took a different job to spend more time with me," said Musick. "Money isn't everything, but it's good, it's going to go into savings and going to be able to help some people that need help to so it really means a lot."

Musick's wedding is planned for May 10, 2014, the day before Mother's Day. She said her mother passed away recently, so the day will be extra special to her.
