Wakulla Schools Salute “All-Star” Performers
The Wakulla County school teachers, administrative staff and school board members honored the education profession at a celebration, Friday, February 16, 2007 at Riversprings Middle School. Beth O’Donnell, Assistant Superintendent selected a theme centered on a song written by Laura Hudson, WMS Band Director, entitled, Because of You. Every 2006-2007 District Teacher of the Month, every school’s Teacher of the Year and the Wakulla District Teacher of the Year were recognized.Superintendent David Miller was thrilled with the opportunity to salute educators. He shared, “Education and technology are changing exponentially compared to days of yesteryear. We are constantly challenged to learn, to polish, to improve. Today, we honor all Wakulla teachers.” Mike Carter of the Wakulla Academic Boosters and Ray Cromer of Envision Credit Union also made presentations to the teachers.
The 2007 Wakulla County School District Teacher of the Year is Crissy Sarvis, Riversprings Middle School Teacher. Sarvis went through rigorous judging of an extensive written packet and face-to-face interviews by educators from outside Wakulla County. Also in the competition, elected as their schools’ Teacher of the Year were Pat Calhoun, Crawfordville Elementary; Connie Worrill, Medart Elementary; Rhonda Traweek, Shadeville Elementary; Angie Walker, Wakulla Middle School; Sunny Chancy, Wakulla High and Ashley Anderson representing all the district professionals who work with children.
After a festive morning, the school district continued the recognition for all instructional support staff and business professionals. Each of these employees received appreciation gifts, a fried chicken dinner catered by the Wakulla cafeteria ladies and mini-all-star jerseys. Every school principal cheered for their teams as well. Karen J. Wells, Director of HR said, “The All-Stars theme was selected because of two key words: Team and Stars. Our Wakulla all-star team is composed chiefly of outstanding performers.”
David Miller firmly believes in team loyalty. He emphasized, “When you are part of a team, you stand up for your teammates. Your loyalty is to them. That’s why we take the time to recognize our team.”
