Surry County Schools and the Surry County Schools Educational Foundation recently recognized Jennifer Murray, exceptional children’s teacher at Franklin Elementary School, as the first 2017-2018 Employee of the Month.
The Surry County Schools Employee of the Month recognition program began in the 2013-2014 school year. Each month an employee of the Surry County School System is chosen through a nomination process. The nomination process is open to the public.
Community members, parents, students, teachers, and other employees complete a form located on the Surry County School System website at www.surry.k12.nc.us under Links. Employee of the Month is awarded for ten months – September through June.
Several grandparents and parents used the online form to nominate Murray. Comments on her behalf included: “She is a teacher to a sweet little girl with autism. Mrs. Murray has shown such care and dedication to her and all the children in her class. Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to speak on behalf of my granddaughter to honor her teacher. Teachers deserve so much more than we could ever give them. It takes a special person with a wonderful heart to teach children with special needs. I appreciate all she has done.”
Yadkin Valley Real Estate, Group 3 Real Estate, Crouse’s Auto Detailing, 13 Bones, and Scenic Motors will sponsor this program for 2017-2018. Each Employee of the Month receives gift cards from these businesses.
