Gary Towery was just notified last month that he was recognized by his peers as this year’s Region 7 Instructional Management Coordinator of the Year out of 21 school districts in the area. He now has one more award to put on his list as the students of Newton-Conover High School dedicated this year’s yearbook to him as well. The yearbook staff announced his name after the Underclassman Awards were completed in the gymnasium, Friday, May 23, 2014.
Mr. Towery is no stranger to Newton-Conover and said that he feels he, “made a great decision to come the Newton-Conover City Schools system.” The students and staff all respect his way of getting things done. One student passage that was printed on his dedication page in the yearbook reads:
“Mr. Towery is one of the sweetest men to walk this earth. He will go high and above for the students at NCHS and has a smile on his face the entire time he’s doing it. He’s always running around determined to get things done, but doesn’t mind to stop and say hello and ask how you’re doing. This yearbook is dedicated to Gary Towery and all of the time and effort he puts into the school, as well as all of the smiles he brings to the student body’s faces. Congratulations Mr. Towery, we love you!”
