N-CCS teachers, administrators, Board of Education members, and community members gathered at Market on Main in Hickory on Thursday, September 18th to celebrate excellence in education! The theme for the evening was “A Solid Foundation”, and the celebration centered around the strong, consistent, and successful careers of our teachers and principal of the year. The event was sponsored by our fine friends at Wellington Benefits.
N-CCS school-level teachers of the year, as well as the district-level winners of the year, spent the evening enjoying fellowship with others, dining on a wonderful meal, and reading special messages from their school family members, written on paper bricks decorating the table.
The school personnel of the year are pictured below (l-r): Charles Draper (N-CMS), Jamie Frye (N-CHS-New Teacher), Christy Buff (South Newton), Julia Styers (South Newton-Principal), Julianne Surratte (Shuford), Eileen Cangemi (Conover), and Rachel Fulbright (North Newton).
