Extra Mile Award

CCS’ Extra Mile Award Monthly Winner

Fayetteville, N.C. – A bus driver’s primary responsibility is getting students to and from school safely. For Ewrik McKoy, a bus driver and custodian at Elizabeth Cashwell Elementary School, that is a job he does not take lightly.

After dropping off two students during his bus route one afternoon, McKoy noticed two of his bus riders were being chased by a wild dog. Thinking quickly, McKoy maneuvered his bus to block the dog so that the children could get on the bus and avoid being attacked. He kept the children on the bus as the dog chased the parent back into the house.

After finishing his route, McKoy brought the children back home. At that time, an adult was outside keeping the dog at bay so the children could enter their home safely.

For his quick thinking and compassion, McKoy has been selected as the Cumberland County Schools’ Extra Mile Award recipient for the month of March. LaTonya Adams, assistant principal at Cashwell Elementary, nominated McKoy, who will receive a plaque and be recognized at the regular monthly Cumberland County Board of Education meeting on March 10, 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.
