CCSD Honors Support Staff Employees of the Year

The Cherokee County School District (CCSD) celebrated the important role of support staff at its inaugural Support Staff Employee of the Year Awards.

The celebration honored one Support Staff Employee of the Year from each of CCSDs schools, centers, and central office divisions. All 46 honorees were recognized.

At the conclusion of the evening, surprise presentations were made to one overall winner in each division (school, center, and central office). The Elementary School winner was Carmel Elementary School kindergarten paraprofessional Sharon Borg; Middle School/High School/Centers winner was Woodstock High School principals secretary Carol Pontius; and Central Office winner was CCSD Payroll Clerk Tammie Collis. A committee of retired educators and community leaders selected these overall winners.

When we announced the creation of these awards, I referred to them as long-overdue, which is very true. Theyre also very well deserved, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said to the audience of honorees and their guests. For those who dont know our school district as well as we all do, they may think it just takes teachers and principals to run a successful school. But, as we all know, our support staff makes up half of our CCSD family. Your work is important. You are important. We value you.
