Director of Schools with Crystal Kennedy

Crystal Kennedy, Career Technical Education Director for Cannon County and CCHS Business Teacher was named as “Employee of the Month” for December 2018 by Cannon County Schools. During the December Meeting of the Cannon County Board of Education on Thursday, December 13th, 2018, Mrs. Kennedy was recognized and presented a certificate by Cannon County Schools Director William F. Curtis for her service to her school and the Cannon County School System.  Employees are nominated by School Principals or School District Supervisors and are voted on during monthly Principal and Supervisor meetings regarding individuals who exemplify the Mission and Vision of Cannon County Schools.
Cannon County High School Principal Courtney Nichols nominated Kennedy for this honor and stated regarding this outstanding educator:
“Mrs. Kennedy developed a spreadsheet for all of the current Seniors that tracks their achievements in regards to the Ready Graduate state requirements.  Until this spreadsheet was developed by Mrs. Kennedy, the High School had nothing in place to track this information and house it in one easy to read place.  This involved tracking all classes, EPSO's (Early Post-Secondary Opportunities), ACT scores, and the ASVAB (US Military Aptitude Exam) scores.
This required a lot of work over many hours.  She did this in addition to meeting her requirements as CTE Director and Business teacher.  Crystal is always willing to take initiative and help in any way she can.”
Director of Cannon County Schools,William F. Curtis stated, “Mrs. Kennedy does an exceptional job in various ways and areas.  Her expertise as CTE Director and Business Teacher is outstanding.  However, Crystal has gone the “extra mile” to produce this document that has been shared with other school systems in the Upper Cumberland area.  I believe Crystal personifies our Mission of Cannon County Schools of ‘Preparing All Students for their Future’ by most assuredly being ‘E3 – Engaged in Excellence Every Day.’  Congratulations to Mrs. Kennedy for being an impactful ‘Team Player’ in our Cannon County Schools family for all Cannon County Students.”
