Campbellsville Middle School teacher Tiarra Cecil received the Change Award at the Campbellsville Board of Education meeting on Monday, Oct. 21.
Superintendent Kirby Smith honors three Change Award winners each month, including a certified and classified employee and a community member.
Cecil received the certified 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.
CMS Principal Zach Lewis nominated Morris for the honor.
Cecil graduated from CHS in 2001 and now teaches sixth-grade social studies classes.
“She has been a member of the Eagle family for 10 years,” Lewis wrote. “Ms. Cecil has a passion to see all students be successful, not only in the classroom, but also in life.”
Lewis wrote that Cecil brings positive energy to each situation she is involved in, and constantly pushes students to believe they can do anything they put their mind to.
“Not only is Ms. Cecil a fantastic teacher, but she is also a great coach of the young women in our school district.”
Cecil is a positive role model to each of her players, Lewis wrote, and the many students she supports at other extra-curricular events throughout the District.
“Ms. Cecil always keeps our most important part of CMS at the forefront of every decision made – our students.
“She is a valued member of the CMS family, and is dedicated and passionate about making Campbellsville Independent Schools the best school district it can be.”
Cecil has worked for CIS since 2010.
