Campbellsville Middle School bookkeeper Shannon Hughes 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.
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.
CMS teachers Paige Cook and Robbilyn Speer nominated Hughes for the honor.
On her nomination form, Cook and Speer wrote that they, as CMS Junior Beta Club sponsors, have seen first-hand the impact Hughes has made on their school.
“Not only is she patient, kind and super helpful, she has the best interest of our students in mind at all times,” they wrote.
“Shannon goes above and beyond to make our jobs a little easier as sponsors and teachers. Some may see her job as a bookkeeper, but her impact goes beyond the four walls of her office. We simply could not be where we are if it wasn’t for Mrs. Hughes.”
Cook and Speer wrote that Hughes has attended the National Beta Convention for three years, and helped with booking hotels to volunteering with students and more.
“She is the epitome of selfless, loving, caring and a team player,” they wrote.
Hughes began working at CMS in August 2018.
