  • Dana Nance, who works in the Dana Nance receives award Transportation Department, received the new 20/20 Vision Award during the Board of Education meeting on March 3. Dana goes above and beyond her job responsibilities. One day after school hours, she learned about a house fire that impacted students in multiple schools, and made sure to notify supervisors so help could be provided. She has also answered calls and texts in mornings, nights, and on weekends to help arrange transportation for students who wouldn’t have been able to get to school without her assistance. She is appreciated for having a heart for kids and always going out of her way to put the needs of others before her own. “Every child has a story if you just take the time to read it.”

  • Karen Daugherty, preschool assistant Karen Daugherty honored with award teacher at Earlington Elementary and West Hopkins, received the new 20/20 Vision Award during the Board of Education meeting on March 3. Karen demonstrates service excellence in all she does! She has a commitment to Team Hopkins, a positive demeanor, and student-centered service. Early in the year, the Earlington evening preschool bus route needed a monitor … Karen accepted the temporary assignment without hesitation. She seized the opportunity and truly made the bus an extension of the classroom. She provided interventions, taught kindergarten readiness skills, and took the time to make deeper personal connections with children and families. When the monitor position was filled, she had a difficult time letting go. She has truly embraced our 20/20 vision. Karen takes the time to read every child’s story and helps them add new pages every day!
