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.
The Dooly County Board meeting was called to order by Miss Faith Leggett.
