As students round out yet another unique school year, we’d like to take a moment to acknowledge all of the hard work put in not just by teachers, but also by the custodians, bus drivers, and other school staff, without whom this school year could not have been possible.
We know that North Carolina schools are brimming with individuals who make it their mission to lift up future generations every single day. To us, they are heroes. Last year, we asked you to nominate your NC School Hero. And you responded in a big way, sharing heartfelt tributes to those making a big difference in our schools.
This year, 10 teachers and school workers from public schools across our great state were named our NC School Heroes, winning awards of $10,000 for themselves and $10,000 for their schools.
These are amazing individuals. See how they are changing students’ lives every day in this video.
The School Heroes selected this year have all stepped up for our children during these unprecedented times and provide a glimpse into the world of these everyday heroes. We are glad to shine a spotlight on their great work. So as this school year ends, be sure to thank your own School Hero and wish them a restful summer!
