November Coin of Distinction Recipient: Mrs. Laurie Lowery From Hollie Walters: I am proud to nominate Ms. Laurie Lowery for the Coin of Distinction. Mrs. Lowery is a selfless educator who goes above and beyond the call of duty of her regular teaching assignments to ensure that all teachers and students have what they need. She assists grade level teachers and students, some of whom she does not even teach, in order to edify and build them up. She always tries to make the load of others lighter, even if it means carrying a little more weight herself. Recently, this summer, she was the lead teacher for our summer remediation program at Dooly K-8 Academy. Her heart is so huge and her desire that no children to goes without showed in her unspoken actions. When certain resources and books for students were late arriving, Mrs. Lowery went into her own pocket to purchase the materials so that all students could have the materials timely. She also spent countless hours working at the school planning and coordinating in order to make sure everyone had what they needed from teachers all the way to administrators. She is the epitome of a selfless giver. She does not do it for show and it can be seen in everything that she does. She is a true leader at heart. She reminds me of the quote by the late Dr. Rita Pierson, “Every child needs a champion”. Mrs. Lowery represents this in everything that she does and that is why she is being nominated for the Coin of Distinction.

Dooly County High School has earned a graduation rate score of 89.8% for the 2020- 21 school year! DCHS’s high-school graduation rate did not change significantly from 2020 to 2021 – the 2021 rate is 89.8 percent, compared to 90.2 percent in 2020. Also, the Georgia state graduation rate is currently at 83.7%, which means that Dooly County High School surpassed the state average for the second consecutive year. The school system reflects an 87.8% graduation rate when PREP Academy is included. PREP received a rating of “Too Few Students,” which means that the PREP graduation rate was not calculated. Thus, DCHS remains steady as last year at a near 90% graduation rate. DCHS Principal Jerry Sanders states, "I am proud of the work and the direction we are moving in as we continue to Head to the TOP! We are continuously working to improve our instructional practices to ensure the success of every student." “I commend the efforts of students, parents, faculty, staff, and the community-as-a-whole for this accomplishment” says Superintendent Dr. Craig Lockhart. “Higher graduation rates increase our chances of creating a highly skilled workforce, and that makes the quality of living better here in Dooly County. Great job everyone!” This is our Time of Prosperity (TOP). Dooly County School System is indeed Headed to the TOP!
