Campbellsville High School attendance clerk Missy Hughes received the Change Award at the Campbellsville Board of Education meeting on Monday, Sept. 11.
Campbellsville Independent Schools Superintendent Kirby Smith honors three Change Award winners each month, including a certified and classified employee and a community member.
Hughes received the classified Change Award.
The awards are given based upon six elements, which spell the word Eagles. They include Encouraging and exhibiting Attitudes of Greatness, while Leading with high Expectations to Success.
In reading a letter nominating Hughes for the honor, Smith said she is very kind and considerate.
“She is an Eagle through and through, and has a deep passion for our students,” Smith read.
“She conducts the office with efficiency and professionalism, while maintaining respect for the clientele she is assisting.”
Smith said Hughes supports every group activity in which students participate.
“She always offers to help wherever it is needed. Very often, she gives of her own time and without complaint.”
In accepting the honor, Hughes said she is appreciative of the honor.
“Mr. Smith hired me … and I remember his last question was, ‘What is your biggest weakness?’ And I was like, ‘Kids. They are, they’re my biggest weakness.’
“I love every one of them and I just appreciate you giving me the chance to be here,” she said.
Hughes began working at CHS in July 2011.
