Campbellsville Independent Schools Director of Pupil Personnel and Campbellsville Middle School Assistant Principal Tim Bailey received the Change Award at the Campbellsville Board of Education meeting on Monday, March 9.
Superintendent Kirby Smith honors three Change Award winners each month, including a certified and classified employee and a community member.
Bailey 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 Bailey for the honor.
On his nomination form, Lewis wrote that Bailey embodies many characteristics that go along with being an Eagle.
“He is loyal, trustworthy, fair, responsible and supportive,” Lewis wrote. “Mr. Bailey is always willing to do whatever is best for the students.
“Over the past three years, I have witnessed Mr. Bailey do whatever is asked of him, many times going above and beyond what is expected.”
Lewis wrote that Bailey has picked students up for school on many occasions, and worked extremely hard in his DPP role to make sure students are attending school.
“Known by many of his co-workers as ‘The King,’ Mr. Bailey is a valued member of the Eagle family at Campbellsville Middle School.”
Bailey said he came to CIS about 25 years ago, not knowing anyone, but has been treated as if he graduated from the District.
“The good Lord could have put me anywhere,” he said.
Bailey said he is proud to work for CIS and will miss his co-workers and students after retiring in a few years.
Bailey has worked for CIS since 1995.
