N-CCS Announces Teachers and Principal of the Year!

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 here (l-r): Charles Draper (N-CMS TOY), Jamie Frye (N-CHS-New Teacher of the Year), Christy Buff (South Newton TOY & N-CCS Teacher of the Year), Julia Styers (South Newton-N-CCS Principal of the Year), Julianne Surratte (Shuford TOY), Eileen Cangemi (Conover TOY), and Rachel Fulbright (North Newton TOY).

N-CCS is proud of these amazing educators who make us all proud to say "We are Newton-Conover!"
