Congratulations to Mrs. Tammy Hayman, the N-CCS December Employee of the Month! Tammy is a School Counselor at Newton-Conover High School where she helps students plan for their futures with a careful plan and a caring heart! Recently, Tammy has worked countless hours preparing for the 4th Annual Community Christmas meal. She coordinated food and volunteers, secured donations, arranged for pictures with Santa for the kids who attended, made sure the word got out to those in the community who would benefit from this event, and so much more. Tammy's heart for reaching out to help meet the needs of the high school students and the community is obvious-- seen in her tireless work on this event, as well as the Back to School Bash in August.
Angie Sigmon, a K-3 teacher at Shuford Elementary School in Conover, was named North Carolina's latest Milken Educator Award winner and the recipient of a $25,000 prize on Friday, October 17th.
State Superintendent June Atkinson made the surprise announcement during a school-wide assembly. Sigmon is among up to 40 outstanding elementary educators who will receive the Milken Educator Award for the 2014–15 school year, which carries with it an unrestricted financial award of $25,000 and membership in a network of over 2,600 past recipients from across the nation.
State Superintendent June Atkinson said, "In her 13-year career, Angie has inspired her students and colleagues alike to unlock learning potential with technology, to try new things, to help one another and to always believe in themselves. She represents her profession well and we are so fortunate that she has chosen to share her passion and talents with North Carolina’s students and teachers."
