Extra Mile Award

CCS’ Extra Mile Award Monthly Winner

Fayetteville, NC – The holidays are a time of giving, but for families in need, sometimes buying gifts can be a challenge. School Social Worker Cheryl Mitchell has a solution: The Re-Gifting Store at VanStory Hills Elementary School, which supports children who want to provide gifts to family members.

Mitchell spearheaded the Re-Gifting Store, where students can “shop” and wrap gifts for their loved ones for the holidays.
Lizzie Shepherd, a teacher at the school, sees the importance of this project. “This enables the neediest students at our school to share in the joy of giving, all thanks to Mrs. Mitchell,” Shepherd said. “Mrs. Mitchell’s accolades are many, but this is just the most recent example of her going the extra mile for CCS students.”

For her innovation, Mitchell has been selected as the Cumberland County Schools’ Extra Mile Award recipient for the month of January. Mitchell will receive a certificate and be recognized at the regular monthly Cumberland County Board of Education meeting on Jan. 14, 2020.

Based on the district’s core values, which are part of CCS’ Strategic Plan 2024, the Extra Mile Award is designed to acknowledge employees who demonstrate a sustained high level of performance and inspire others to do their best.

Any permanent full-time or part-time employee is eligible for this monthly recognition program. Nominations can be submitted here: https://tinyurl.com/y4q4gzc9. Nominations are due by the 15th of each month. To learn more about CCS’ Extra Mile Award, visit www.extramileaward.ccs.k12.nc.us
