Brandywine School District's November 2021 School Board meeting was eventful and informative and included several celebrations and special presentations. Among the many highlights: reports from student leaders at each of our high schools; a special presentation from Governor John Carney; celebrations for more building Education Support Professionals of the Year and Teachers of the Year; and special videos celebrating Veterans Day and all the great things happening in our schools this past month.
The School Board was thrilled to once again welcome leaders from all three high schools to present their student reports. The students detailed the various initiatives at all of the high schools including a focus on service and volunteerism, plans for an upcoming blood drive, and the celebrations already underway for graduating seniors. A special thank you to Ethan Hann-Deschaine from Brandywine High School; Maya Reeves and Elicia Garcia from Concord High School; and Katherine Farabaugh and Lily Holmes from Mount Pleasant High School for sharing their updates.
The tradition also continues of celebrating the 2022 Building Educator Support Professional and Teacher of the Year winners for each of our district buildings. On Monday, Bayard Gibbons (pictured left with Principal Keith Rolph) was celebrated as the Brandywine High School Educator Support Professional of the Year. Lori McRae (pictured center with Principal Mark Mayer) was celebrated as the Teacher of the Year for Concord High School. Finally, Lisa Welch (not pictured) was celebrated as the Educator Support Professional of the Year for Bush/ECAP while Laura Roper (pictured right) was celebrated as Teacher of the Year for Bush/ECAP. Congratulations to all of the support professionals and teachers honored on Monday!
