Counselor, Calhoun Middle-High School
The newly formed chapter of the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) spent the fourth week of October recognizing and honoring the principals of Calhoun County Middle-High School.
The hallways and doors to the offices of Co-Principals, Karen Kirby, Kelli Whystell and Vice Principal Doris Weekly were covered with hundreds of thank you notes as well as giant posters.
"I am not sure our principals know that we understand what a valuable job they do and that the school could not run without them, but we do," said Dora Harrison, who is an active member of the NJHS.
Principals were treated to some of their favorites during the week such as coffee, Coke, chocolate, chocolate and chocolate.
One day was set aside to honor all the principals including the Elementary Principals. Everyone got red and white carnations (except Mr. Minney who got a PHE eagle coffee cup) and plush "red devil" with a pitchfork.
A luncheon was planned but getting all 3 principals together in CCMHS during lunch time can be a very trying thing to accomplish. So Principals you are still due a luncheon cooked by NJHS members sometime this year.
NJHS is now gearing up for National Anti-Bullying Week in November. Middle and High school has combined this year to bring what we hope will be eventful and thought provoking programs for the students as well as events which include community members and parent workshops for adults. We will keep you informed as time draws closer.
