It’s August, and that means Back to School time! Century Next Bank has had the honor to help with several back to school events in Ashley County the past couple of weeks. We have enjoyed meeting and visiting with the faculty of Crossett and Hamburg School Districts during back to school breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. We here at Century Next Bank are dedicated to helping our schools succeed! We send a big “Thank You” to Big Daddy’s and McDonald’s of Crossett for catering the Back to School events.
We would like to focus and spotlight some of the teachers in Ashley County. We are very blessed to have some of the best teachers in our community!
First, we have April Adams from Crossett High School. April, who teaches English, has been an educator for 16 years. She became an educator because she enjoys working with children and young adults, and she also wants to provide them with the same opportunities that she was given when she was a student in the Crossett School District. April believes it is very important that we prepare our students for a future that is going to be different from today. April is very thankful for the opportunity to work for the Crossett School District and to contribute to the future of Ashley County. April says that her favorite memory as a teacher is, “watching my former students earn their high school diplomas and become CHS alumni. Seeing my students graduate from high school gives me a sense of pride knowing that I was a part in helping them fulfill this goal in their lives.”
Second, Evan Owens is in her seventh year teaching for Hamburg School District. Evan is currently a special education resource teacher for kindergarten through second grade at Noble Elementary. She is also the Parental Involvement Facilitator for Noble Elementary. Evan says that she could not ask for a better job or a better environment in which to work. She became a teacher because she wants to give all she can back to the community that shaped her. Evan said that each day she gets to work with the most precious kiddos and she wants them to know they are “loved, wanted, and safe while in my classroom.”
Be sure to follow our blog throughout the month of August as we will feature more teachers and their impact and commitment to our children and our schools.Tags: Community
