CCS’ Extra Mile Award October Winner

Fayetteville, NC – For Ellen Swinson, student safety is always her top priority. As a bus driver for Ashley Elementary School, she is constantly going the ‘extra mile’ to ensure all students make it to and from school safely – even students who ride other buses.

Recently, after finishing her route for the day, Swinson noticed a bus from VanStory Elementary had pulled over due to mechanical issues. She immediately stopped to help, offering the students an air-conditioned place to wait. After speaking with VanStory’s administration, Swinson ended up finishing the bus route so that the students would arrive home in a timely manner.

For literally going the extra mile, Swinson is Cumberland County Schools’ (CCS) Extra Mile Award recipient for the month of October. She was nominated under the Compassion category by Carolyn Ortiz, a teacher assistant at Ashley Elementary, who praised Swinson for putting children first.

Swinson will receive a certificate and be recognized at the regular monthly Cumberland County Board of Education meeting on October 8.

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.
