Convocation 2015 - 'Greatness Begins with a Dream'
The auditorium at Scotland High School was full of administrators, teachers, and staff on Friday morning, August 21 for Convocation and to celebrate the start of the 2015-16 school year. The program began by recognizing all of our school-level Teachers of the Year and announcing our district Teacher of the Year - Wenona Mishue (Spring Hill Middle Schools), Teacher Assistant of the Year - Myra Bartell (Laurel Hill Elementary School), Principal of the Year - Chuck Dulin (South Scotland Elementary School), and Assistant Principal of the Year - Laura Bailey (South Scotland Elementary School).
Superintendent, Dr. Ron Hargrave, challenged staff to inspire our students to dream and reminded us that every child is only one adult away from being successful. Retired educator, Annie Cureton, was the keynote speaker for the event. She entertained as well as encouraged the staff to make the most of their time with their students this year, knowing from experience the impact that can come with working in a school.
At the end of the program, Dr. Hargrave reminded staff that we are a school system, not simply a system of schools, and that together, we can achieve anything - We Are Family!
